About L’Imposteur — Avant-Garde Bourbon
breaking through to new heights & global markets.
Born on passion, collaboration, hard work…
a testament to the National Capital Region!
Like most good stories, our story began with two friends having a drink. Ever since that momentous occasion, L’Imposteur has been dedicated to creating an Avant-Garde Bourbon that highlights a distinct Canadian personality. When Benoit Gratton and Frédéric Geoffroy started talking, they realized there was a strong need for an authentic Bourbon with a local and modern twist. Already being passionate about Scotch, Whisky and Bourbon made starting L’Imposteur an easy decision.
What seemed like an easy decision didn’t turn out that way. Like every great idea, obstacles and roadblocks started coming out of nowhere. After a time of experimentation, the two founders of L’Imposteur found a way to infuse a creative touch of local taste into spirits. This unique approach to their dream of developing an Avant-Garde Bourbon with a Canadian personality became a shining symbol of the local resilience that most people in Canada’s National Capital Region share.
Benoit and Frederic could not deliver you on this avant-garde Bourbon without the collaboration of people they met through their adventure that were key to help achieving their vision. The result is a collaborative business model focused on locally developed products... and of course, on passion for spirits!
