A wee dram, s’il vous plait: France enters world of whisky-making

/ 05:24 PM November 26, 2018

French CEO of the Warenghem distillery, David Roussier proceeds to an olfactive test on November 13, 2018 in Lannion, western France. France currently has 33 fully operational whiskey distilleries, according to the Federation of French whiskey. But their number should quickly double: thirty have begun to distill. They still have to wait until the alcohol has aged for three years in barrels to claim the name of whiskey and to start the marketing. The Warenghem distillery was the first to embark on the adventure of Breton whiskey, the first whisky ‘made in France.’ Image: AFP/Fred Tanneau
