Indian Whisky

Much of the liquor labelled in India as ‘whisky’ is in fact a molasses-based distillation, and does not qualify as whisky under EU regulations. That said there are a number of distillers producing quality whiskies, many of which are youthful, fruity and malty. Amrut Distilleries pioneered the production of whisky from grain in India in the 1980s, and today is doing exciting things with cask maturation, while John Distilleries’ Paul John range is a foray into the premium single malt category.
