About Patrick Bourassa and André Girard

Recognized as the leading whiskey experts in Quebec, their whiskey conferences reach thousands of people every year. In addition, Patrick was the only external collaborator invited by the SAQ to collaborate in the development of the "Connaisseurs" course on whiskeys, while André was the first Quebec judge of the famous Canadian Whiskey Awards.

In addition to the numerous conferences they give on the subject, they co-founded the Scotch Whiskey Club of Quebec (in which they are still co-presidents) in 2008, which is the oldest and largest Club dedicated to whiskey in Quebec.

They are the creators of the French reference of whiskey, www.quebecwhisky.com, with more than 500,000 visitors per year. They also host chronicles on spirits on CHOI 98.1FM and Énergie in Québec City.

Their most recent trips took them to Scotland, Ireland and Kentucky, where they met the greatest masters of distillation who shared their secrets with them.
