A French single malt whisky worth trying

Little is known about French single malt whisky but nonetheless they do exist, and we profile one such whisky, the Bastille 1789 whisky. This whisky is produced by a distilling family (two brothers) which was already producing cognac and looking to explore the Celtic side of their heritage (their mother was Irish). The whisky formulation distills malted barley grown in northeast France, fermented with a cultured yeast strain dating back 120 years, and then double-distilled in Charantais copper alembic stills (the traditional equipment for making cognac).
