Warenghem Spirits began in 1900, when the Warenghem family moved from northern France to Lannion. It was Léon Warenghem who founded the distillery, which initially specialised in the production of fruit and plant liqueurs and creams. Elixir d'Armorique, the inaugural product, was a huge success, kickstarting the business.
However, what truly revolutionised the Warenghem Distillery was the creation of the first Breton and French whisky in 1987, the WB blend. It wasn’t long until the first Breton single malt whisky followed in 1998, the Armorik. It was only in 2010 that the distillery began to export its products worldwide, though the business is still a family-run affair.
