Bouteille Demiard

The demiard is a bottle coming from Europe more precisely in France of pre-revolutionary time. This traditional volume unit has survived the years into the 21st century. The demiard persisted in France and in the world despite the arrival of the metric system and it has reached Quebec. In France, the demiard corresponds to the 12 inches of the king. This unit of length dating from the Middle Ages has varied with eras, regions and countries. Today we still continue to order a ‘half’ in the designation of half a beer in bistros in France.
