Jérome Fourest

Jérôme Fourest

After participating in the founding of L’atelier des Chefs, where oenology and cocktail classes were already being held alongside cooking classes, he discovered spirits in London when the subsidiary was created. It was then that he fell in love with whisky in particular, a passion that has continued to drive him ever since. In 2010, he met Thierry Benitah, the CEO of La Maison du Whisky, the leading French distributor of premium spirits, who offered him the opportunity to become the General Manager. During this period rich in discoveries, he had the opportunity to travel between Reunion Island, Asia, Scotland, Ireland and Italy in order to select casks, partners and discover their art.

 

When Jérôme announced his departure for the South-West, Luca Gargano, founder of Vélier, and rum pope on the spirits planet, told him: “you will come back to spirits, because this sector is in our blood”.

 

After seven years at the helm of Comtesse du Barry, where he enhanced the culinary specialties of this beautiful region with French and Scottish bottlings aged in Sauternes barrels. He naturally passed the WSET levels and wishes to share with others his passion for this exhilarating world of spirits. Passionate and dynamic, Jérôme will distill some anecdotes and all his knowledge about spirits.
