Indian whiskies are fruity and malty. They are often examples of youthful exuberance, enjoyable and of a defined style in their own right. Plenty of tropical fruit and toffee. India’s climate proffers a speedy maturation.
The first traditional single malt distillery was Amrut, established in 1948 in Bangalore. The recent insurgence of single malt Indian whisky has been produced to the Scottish Whisky Association’s strict regulations.
‘Engineered in Germany, made in India’ is how Indian Scotch Whisky would define itself. It utilizes the techniques of making Scotch in Scotland and makes them in India.
Amrut Fusion gets its name from the fact that it uses two barleys: Indian and Scottish - with the latter being peated for good measure. Fusion has been picking up awards ever since it first appeared in 2009, and in 2012 was named the best whisky for a Rob Roy in the Ultimate Cocktail Challenge in New York.
Amrut Naarangi the latest offering from Amrut, the ‘Naarangi’ derives its name from the Hindi word, Naarangi which means “orange.”
It is the only single malt whisky ever produced in the world to have expressions of orange, which brings forth a new level of experimentation to the malt world.
