My First Shot of PM Blend, Corsican Whisky at Summer Fancy Food Show

What's in the P&M name, whisky is made jointly by Brasserie Pietra (makers of the chestnut beer) and Distillerie Mavela.

The brainchild of Lisandru Venturini of Distillerie Maleva it uses the oak casks from Brasserie Pietra for ageing.

So far this new kid on the whisky bloc is just available in France...
