Walsh Whiskey founder and managing director Bernard Walsh says: “We believe Dugas is a great fit for Writers’ Tears through its exclusive network of high-end bars and retail outlets across France which is one of our priority markets worldwide. We look forward to a successful, long-term partnership with Dugas.”

Francois-Xavier Dugas says: “We have known each other very well for a few years. Knowing the great quality of their whiskeys, it’s an honor for us to distribute Writer Tears and build the brand on the selective market. We strongly think that Writer Tears should be a great success with its trendy and modern look and feel.”
