Product details

Brenne was launched back in 2012 by Allison Parc (a former professional ballerina), collaborating with a French distiller in Cognac. Estate Cask is made with locally-grown malted barley double distilled in an alembic Charente still (rather than the more commonly-used whisky pot still). This is the type of still typically used to produce Cognac. 

The whisky is then initially matured in French Limousin oak casks (which are known for their creamy, vanilla-forward nuances) before it’s moved to ex-Cognac casks for a finishing period – Brenne claims that it was the first single malt in the world to be aged exclusively in these two cask types, which is pretty exciting. Each bottle is drawn from a single cask (so no barrel blending here), and blended with water from the Charente river to bring it down to strength.
