A Single Malt Whisky from France? Yes… yes it is.

Jean-Marc Daucourt was born in northern France. His father’s family had been in the distilling business there for years, but Jean-Marc wanted a more diverse education on the subject, so when he came of age, he went to Scotland and Germany to work his apprenticeship in Europe’s finest distilleries. Returning to France, now a master distiller, he acquired an old distilling house near the Cognac appellation and set himself to work creating a range of Whiskies under the Bastille 1789 label.

Bastille 1789 French Single Malt Whisky is all about making a great liquor. They start with malted barley grown in the Champagne region of France. It is distilled in classic, old-world, copper alembic stills—the same kind traditionally used for Cognac and that look like they were plucked out of a medieval alchemist’s workshop. Aging takes between five and seven years in three kinds of casks: French Limousin oak, cherry wood, and acacia.

Smartass Corner 
1789 was the year of the French Revolution, and The Bastille was an infamous prison where the corrupt French monarchy had imprisoned its political enemies. The French Revolution began with the “Storming of The Bastille,” so the name “Bastille 1789 Whisky” is a statement of rebellion and national pride at the same time.
