This is the first of two episodes from Whisky Live Paris, and there’s a lot to cover this weekend. We’ll hear from The Balvenie’s Malt Master, David Stewart, on his 50th anniversary single malt, along with the latest on whiskies from all over the world. In the news, updates on Diageo’s plans for another new malt whisky distillery in Scotland, and Pernod Ricard’s Chivas Brothers unit is getting closer to a decision on a new distillery of its own.
