The origin of Château du Breuil whiskies

Perhaps because in the past, the estate was home to a grain mill…
Château du Breuil decided to create the Château du Breuil Single Malts, a range of whiskies that are the result of exceptional blending skills and a true mastery of distillation.

Normandy, land of whisky

The mild, humid Normandy climate, with the sea not far off and the Touques river winding around the estate and its lake, lends itself perfectly to the ageing of these Single Malts.

The estate also boasts a number of cellars, some of which are over 150 years old, the perfect environment for ageing spirits.

Château du Breuil, barley hunter

With Whisky Le Breuil, Château du Breuil has succeeded in creating the first French single malt whisky produced entirely from Golden Promise barley, a variety known for producing whiskies with an intense malty character that are long and silky on the palate.

Golden Promise, the barley of world famous whiskies.

By selecting this variety for its first range, Château du Breuil has chosen quality over quantity. In fact, Golden Promise barley has the distinction of having a low yield per hectare (1/3 less than current varieties) and in terms of pure alcohol (10% less than current varieties).

It is a rare and high-quality barley that Château du Breuil has been careful to respect throughout the various stages of production, including a traditional malting to respect the grain and a low-intensity kilning to bring out and set off the taste of the grain.

A comment from our Cellar Master, Philippe Etignard

“I believe that the quality of whisky is primarily a reflection of the character of the barley. By choosing the Golden Promise variety, I want to bring you a whisky that has exceptional smoothness and silkiness on the palate.

Throughout the production process, through the many technical choices I have made, I have tried to preserve and enhance these characteristics.
