Review of La Maison du Whisky in Paris
When searching for that elusive bottle of spirits, La Maison du Whisky is the place to go. Open since 1968, their flagship store in the 8th arrondissement boasts 1300 bottles in its collection, including single malt Scotch, pot still Irish whisky and single barrel American whisky. Their second boutique, LMDW Fine Spirits, located on the Right Bank, offers not only whisky but also an eclectic selection of rum, cognac, sake, other spirits and even tea and spices. Following in the footsteps of his father, founder Georges Bénitah who was one of the first whisky importers in France, Thierry Bénitah continues the legacy of the family-run business. Catering to the French as well as knowledgable tourists from all over the world, be sure to try the shop's bestselling whiskies from Japan and Ireland.
