Brenne French Single Malt Whisky

whi-bre

Former ballerina Allison Parc is responsible for the world’s first single malt to be matured exclusively in Limousin oak and Cognac casks.

She has achieved her goal of bringing the terroir of the Cognac region into the whisky: fruit and patisserie flavours, complex notes of crème brûlée and caramel.

The Brenne French Single Malt is made from malted barley from organic farming in the Cognac region and double distilled in a Charente copper pot still. It is first aged in Limousin oak barrels and then matured in Cognac barrels. The water used for dilution comes from the Charente.

The company is based in New York, where Allison Parc delivered the first bottles of Brenne by city bike. The product is called “Brenne” because the American Allison Parc was unable to pronounce the French expression “brin d’herbe” (blade of grass).
