Like a forgotten evidence: the French have everything to make a good whisky
It’s like a secret that you hear whispered but not spoken aloud, and yet it’s a reality: the French have everything it takes to make a good whisky.
Terroirs of great richness, with a strong identity that expresses itself so well in the world of wine. An important cereal crop and the obvious passion that underlies this activity, by those who practice it. The distillation of the fruit is a demanding skill, even more so than that of barley or wheat. The only thing France lacks is the audacity to legitimately enter this world that the Scots, the Irish and then the Japanese have preempted and declared “national expertise”.
It is with this conviction that the creator of the House, Benjamin Kuentz, embarked on the adventure of creating a publishing house for French whiskies, promoting the magnificent diversity of terroirs, tastes and the art of making. French Touch, so be it !
An adventure driven by the quest for passion and sharing
A passion as a link allowing the pooling of disciplines and arts, to give life to French whiskies, born from beautiful meetings and sharing. These encounters, always fertile with a clever balance of taste, with master craftsmen who enrich the adventure of our House, are the beginnings of a collaboration inspired by a know-how embodied by men and women in love with their land and their trades. Our partners also share the taste for good products, by practicing a reasoned agriculture and respectful of the environment.
With elegance and a touch of audacity, Benjamin Kuentz and the craftsmen of the French terroirs are restoring the prestige of whisky made in France.
Agreement and cocktails
Sweet harmonies of flavours, encounters of tastes, idyllic marriages. Take off on a gustatory journey that will make you discover the unsuspected organoleptic richness behind the name whisky as well as the variety of tasting uses.
The Dessous du Malt
Whisky is defined as: a grain brandy.
In a few words, whisky is like distilling beer which we then age for at least three years in wood before working on a blend of different types of casks to create a unique recipe. Its manufacture can be summarized in 7 key steps that we suggest you discover together.
