Glann ar Mor is a familly owned artisan distillery, facing the seaside on the Northern coast of Brittany in a wild and beautiful setting.
With its double live flame distillation (yes, for the wash still "and" the spirit still), its pair of small onion shaped stills, its worm tubs, its wooden washbacks, and in being easily "The Slowest Distiller in the West", Glann ar Mor is really different and simply unique amongst whisky distilleries.
The very mild climate, never cold in winter but never really hot in summer, oceanic and humid thanks to our seaside location (see http://bit.ly/9ZKXm3), is the other key ingredient which contributes to the unique profile we aim at for our whiskies.
At the moment our first casks are bottled at only just over 3 years, but already show surprising complexity and balance. For instance, the very first bottling of Kornog won a Silver Medal at the 2009 "Malt Maniacs Awards", with a score of 87 which compares very favourably with some of the most famous Islay whiskies.
