    About the Author

    Originally from Burgundy, Mickael Guidot grew up close to the famous wine regions of Beaune and Nuits-Saint-Georges, where he spent a good deal of time in the bars and wine cellars of the region. He left this area to work in Paris for various PR agencies, which is where he got acquainted with numerous brands of Champagne and spirits, and began to develop a more experienced palate and a lively interest in tastings.

    With the aim of sharing his knowledge and discoveries, Mickael set up the website www.forgeorges.fr in 2012. It was named in homage to his grandfather, who had died a few months earlier, and who always used to enjoy aperitifs with the family. He created the blog as a form of sharing and exchange, and has since developed a limitless passion for whisky, borne out by his own vast collection of bottles.
