Indian Whisky

India is ostensibly a huge whisky-drinking nation – the biggest of them all if you look at the bare consumption figures – but nearly all the domestic ‘whisky’ produced here is dominated by the molasses-derived spirit (and therefore, according to EU legislation, not whisky at all).

But there are honorable exceptions – most famously Amrut launched not in India but in Glasgow in 2004. Since then, the company has evolved its techniques and developed an experimental streak, especially in the field of cask maturation.
