We savour (and rate) four of France’s best whiskies. But which one prevailed?

OUR VERDICT

J. MICHARD WHISKY

The live yeast added prior to distillation lends this single malt from Limousin a surprisingly hoppy tang. €69,90

MINIMUS ORGANIC DOMAINE DES HAUTES GLACES

This Alpine single malt is a subtly earthy tipple. The organic credentials are just the cherry on top. Approx. €60

ELSASS ORIGINE DISTILLERIE LEHMANN

Smooth with hints of vanilla, this Alsatian number is sure to convert even the most reticent of ‘whisky-phobes’. €40
