The sixth edition of Paris Whisky Live in September looked like a giant three day whisky party. 4500 visitors tasted, chatted, experimented with cocktails and stunning matchings,wandered along the 80 stands which represented 40 distilleries from across the world.

Among them,new exhibitors like the Australian distilleries or the newly reopened Glenglassaugh.

The Classic Malt and Food stand which featured exquisite sweet nibbles to match with the six Classic Malts distributed 6000 of them!

More than 1500 cocktails were served alongside 4000 chocolates designed by the great chocolate maker Jacques Génin. Not to forget... 1700 litres of water swallowed between two tastings!

On the Friday night, a very exclusive dinner welcomed 12 great whisky collectors coming from all over the worlds and some of the whisky stars for a memorable “collector summit” where incredible drams circulated among the tables. A party of fun and distinction.
