Armorik single malt is produced at Distillerie Warenghem located in Lannion, Bretagne. The distillery was founded in the beginning of the 20th Century by Leon Warenghem.
In the late 1980s the owner’s grandson Paul-Henri Warengehem with his associate Yves Leizour started experimenting with whisky production and introduced the Armorik brand in 1998. Currently the distillery is owned by the Leizour family and equipped with a single pair of stills and produces 120,000 liters of spirit per annum.
