Founded in 1956 by Georges Bénitah, La Maison du Whisky has established itself as one of the largest French specialists in the importing and distribution of rare whiskies. A leader in the sector, its dynamism has played an important role in the evolution of the French market for premium whiskies, and now also fine spirits. This expansion into fine spirits led to the opening of the new LMDW Fine Spirits shop at Carrefour de l’Odéon, in Paris. It is the result of an approach in this domain that is both international and artisanal.
The family business’s first shop was created in 1968, at 20 rue d’Anjou, Paris. This magnificent space, with its wooden paneling, is just a stone’s throw away the Place de la Madeleine and is entirely dedicated to malt whisky. It has also just launched a new Collector’s space, which is set to revolutionise the French market for rare spirits and whiskies. Two other Maison du Whisky shops have also been opened, one in Saint Denis de la Réunion in 2002, and another in Singapore, some four years ago.
