Given their long history of distilling, cooperage and fine food and wine it’s surprising that the French have taken to whisky so late. Not to mention the fact that whisky is now so popular in France that it’s rapidly becoming the country’s national drink (they consume more whisky per capita than the Americans, the Scots or the Irish). While the industry is young, the quality is already very high.
Several producers are now marketing their wares on Australian shores. Noted Whisky writer, Jim Murray, had the privilege of been the first person outside the company to analyse the new product at the official launch commenting, “I told them they were tasting not just a historic malt whisky, but one that deserved the highest praise in its own right.” We endeavour to keep a selection of these Welsh gems.
