From the legendary Celtic Whisky Co. on the far flung coast of Bretagne, the Glann Ar Mor distillery is widely considered one of the world's best. This tiny authentic distillery was founded in 1997 and has sold it's excellent Islay still peated malt since 2009, but we've never had the privelege to sell their incredible whiskies until today. Their excellent 40 ppm expression, Roc'h Hir is matured only in bourbon barrels. It's assumed to be under 10 years old, but it drinks as well as any Islay expression. The cultural connection between this part of France and the western Isles is strong and like those whiskies the spirit of the ocean is imbued in every bottle. The distillery sits on the site of a farm founded in 1668 in the heart of the Tregor region. Founded by Jean and Martine Donnay, the name of the distillery translates to "By the Seaside." The rugged windswept landscape is constant flux and the humid climate and temperate weather, maturation occurs relatively briskly, but it is Glann Ar Mor's commitment to the traditonal production practices that set it apart from many other modern craft distilleries. These whiskies are distilled slowly with open flame on tiny pot stills. Fermentation is done exclusively in small wooden washbacks made from Oregon Pine. The spirit is condensed in traditional worm tubs and never chill-filtered or colored. The tiny production means that these whiskies are not inexpensive to make, but they do rank among some of the world's finest.
