Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité! The national motto of France: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity! These words became the cry of the French people on Bastille Day and throughout the French Revolution. Bastille Day, also known as French National Day (La Fête Nationale), is celebrated throughout France every year on July 14th in remembrance of the storming of the Bastille prison- the spark that lit the fire of what would become the French revolution. Much like the Fourth of July in America, Bastille Day is commemorated with fireworks, parades and other nationwide festivities that celebrate the unity of the French people and the end of tyranny.
This year on July 14th, Eiffel Tower Restaurant will remember this special day by hosting a tasting featuring Bastille Hand Crafted 1789 Rare Whisky. Guests are invited to sample this French Whisky from the distillers of Maison Daucourt from 12pm-3pm in our Left Bank. We will also be featuring a cocktail called Bastille, a blend of Bastille 1789 Whisky, and fresh lemon, lime, and ginger. Join us at Eiffel Tower and raise your glass to a bit of history!
