An absolute revelation, Amrut single malt is beyond any doubt the most outstanding Indian whisky. A big whisky-consuming country, this subcontinent is also one of the world’s major producers. However, Amrut is the only whisky with the qualities required to be sold in Europe. Founded in 1948, a few months after India’s independence, this company based in Bangalore in southern India began to produce whisky according to the Scottish model. Unique in the world of single malts, the warehouse which contains mainly bourbon barrels acts as an “age-accelerator” thanks to its location (approx. 1,000 metres above sea level) and the tropical climate.
Made from Punjabi malted barley, this single malt, characterised by spices and ripe fruit, is matured in casks previously used for bourbon.
