Fine French Whisky

Hey, the guy's only been to Scotland once and makes his whisky in the middle of the French Champagne region, but he's pushing out 60,000 bottles a year and they're all getting sold at a premium price.

Thierry Guillon takes Champagne's OTHER big crop, barley, and turns it in to whisky for the French crowd. Frances consumption of 150 million bottles of whisky each year means his Single Malt de la Montagne de Reims has plenty of market and plenty room for growth.

With the EU's possible insistence that sugar may not be able to be added to Champagne in its making, he may be the only man in business very shortly.

Mon Dieu! It's whisky from Champagne - []
