The Legend

Located in the Monts d’Arrée, in the heart of the Armorique Natural Park, the Yeun Elez is a swamp considered in Breton legends as the Gateway to Hell.

According to the legend reported by Anatole Le braz, it is the place where the evil souls who haunted the living were thrown into hell. Tadic-Coz knew the secret and the ritual of locking souls of ghosts in the body of a black dog. He instructed young Jobic to guide the dog towards the underworld gates. The latter, going from presbytery to presbytery, led the black dog to the rector of Commana. Together, at sunset, they threw the black dog into the Yeun Elez swamp, condemning the ghost to hell.

 

Our peated whisky, Yeun Elez Jobic

Launch in September 2020, Yeun Elez is the result of the distillery’s foray into peated territories. We offer you a peated variation of our Armorik single malt : we use Scottish 50 ppm peated malted barley, water from our own source and our artisanal know-how. Breton Single Malt whisky, it has been distilled and matured to highlights its delicate, elegant, and fruity peat.

Using our traditional pot stills, we strive to create an exceptional single malt that reflects the Breton character.

 

46% – 70cl
Maturation : Bourbon casks

The particularity of peated whisky : peat, an organic material used as a combustible when malted barley is dried. Peat gives to the whisky smoky flavors that appeal to many whisky lovers.

Our Yeun Elez was awarded Best French Whisky Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards 2020 and received a Gold Medal at the Concours Général Agricole de Paris in 2022.

Beautiful aromatic intensity, the peat is medicinal (camphor, cloves) but supported by fruity notes, bananas, cooked peaches and pastry (cream pastry).

 

PALATE

The smoke rounds the palate, citrus notes bringing freshness. Nice roudness with a hint of salinity.

A lingering, iodized and spicy finish, ending with a warm wood fire.
