100% malted barley from North East of France, where some of the world’s finest Scotch producers source their malt.
Yeast: A cultured yeast whose strain is 120 years old.
Distillation: Distilled twice in Charente copper stills.
Water: From the purest Charente springs, naturally filtered for centuries through the limestone layers in the soil of the region.
Ageing: Limousin oak barrels which had previously held Sauternes, Red Burgundy, and Sherry.
Tasting notes: With a deep amber color, BASTILLE 1789 Single Malt proves to be a soft, rich, and complex whisky. It presents complex notes of fruit, sweet spices, and leather, ending with a slightly peaty finish. It reveals layers of character brought about by the triple cask ageing.

For four generations, the Daucourt family has shared a passion for spirits, experience of distillation, rigor of the production and has always imposed themselves at the origin of new industry trends, (Jean-Marc XO Vodka, X-Rated Fusion Liqueur). Inspired by their Irish mother, their idea was to create a French whisky using the family distillery's traditional gooseneck pot stills, which are typical of the Charente region.
Jean-Marc, Edouard and Charles Daucourt made their dream a reality by creating a truly French Whisky, and becoming pioneers in this new spirit category!
