All about making whisky
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
Like Tequila, Sotol is protected by a controlled appellation. It is produced solely in the states of Chihuahua, Durango and Coahuila in North Mexico, where wild sotol plants reach full ripeness only after spending some 15 years in the desert. Produced in the Vinomex distillery, in the heart of the state of Chihuahua, the Sotols de Hacienda de Chihuahua are fermented using champagne yeast before being matured in French oak casks. In fact the master distiller, José Daumas, was even trained in Montpellier and draws on his experience working for well-known cognac and champagne houses in France to oversee the process.
