CLÉMENCE VIAULT

NIKKA Brand Ambassador
Clémence was born in Burgundy and studied translation and interpreting at the University of Geneva.

She travelled to the North West of Scotland and worked at the Dundonnell Hotel where she tasted her first single malt. An eye-opener! She decided to write an essay about the terminology of whisky in order to complete her Master's degree, then settled in the Highlands for almost three years.

Determined to learn more about the production of whisky, she passed a Certificate of Brewing and Distilling while working as a tour guide at Glen Ord Distillery, near Inverness, before joining La Maison du Whisky in August 2018.

She still remembers the first Japanese whisky she tried… A Nikka from the Barrel!
