Brenne French Single Malt Whisky Ten 70cl
A ten year aged limited edition from France's Brenne
Brenne French Single Malt Whisky Ten
What sets Brenne apart from the crowd was its desire to show terroir (a sense of place found in the smell and taste) is possible when making single malt whisky.
Brenne was founded by a former ballerina turned whisky entrepreneur (Allison Parc), and is crafted at a third-generation farm distillery located in Cognac, France.
Brenne's Ten Limited edition is an annual release, which starts its life in the same fashion as the award winning original.
The process begins in the fields, where two types of heirloom barley are grown on the estate. These are the starting point for Brenne Whisky. The mash is created using a strain of yeast that has been used by the distillers family for generations. This is then twice-distilled in an alembic Charente still.
After this initial process, Brenne Ten differs in that it is aged for a decade in a combination of new French Limousin oak and Cognac casks. As with the original, after resting the proofing is done using water from the Charente river before bottling.
Just like the original, this attention to detail gives the enjoyer a true sense of French terroir in the taste and smell of the whisky.
And with the Ten limited edition Brenne really have created something special. Whilst it shares the Estate Cask’s DNA, it has a deeper, striking richness to it. On the palate, it still has their signature creamy fruit-forward taste, but with notes of dried fruits, chili, black pepper, spices, and dark chocolate.
