Whisky in France

French Whisky designates all the spirits made by the distillation of malted or non-malted cereals on French Territory. This wine list from starred gastronomic restaurants, references whiskies made on the French continent and its overseas departments.

In France, whisky represents around 28% of the total volume of sales of spirits. In addition, it is the first importer of Scotch Whisky in the world. So, it is logical that producers of French Whisky started to develop. The majority of Whisky consumed in France comes from Scotland, and the brands William Peel and Grants are the most popular with French consumers. The consumption of French Whisky increases each year to the rhythm of expansion of French Whisky producers.

A lot of regions in France have their own Whisky. Each French Whisky has its own recipe and production method. Naturally, each French Whisky has its own characteristic flavour. There exist Whiskies produced in Aquitaine, Brittany, Occitania, Alsace, Auvergne- Rhône-Alpes, Champagne-Ardennes, Corsica, Franche-Comté, Lorraine, the North of France, Normandy, Haute-Vienne and Ile de France. In all these regions, distilleries and liquor makers produce Whisky made in France.

It is interesting to note that some French whiskies are made from Scottish Whiskies. Bestwine • Online only references whiskies that have been totally elaborated on French Territory.
