This month we learn about Japanese spirits in France, their increasing visibility in Paris and how the two cultures are coming together to create something more than the sum of their parts for culinary/cocktail experiences.
Eric Fossard of Liquid Liquid and Didier Ghorbanzadeh of La Maison du Whisky share details on their current projects related to Japanese spirits in Paris and share their insights about sake, shochu, and Japanese whisky and more.
You may also want to check out my earlier interview with Didier from Spirits Education in the Industry episode of Paris Cocktail Talk.
