Amrut is truly the pioneer of Indian Single Malt around the world. Most “whisky” produced in India would be classified as rum here in the United States so producing a Scottish-style single malt was a huge risk but wow did it pay off! The word Amrut is from the Sanskrit language and means “nectar of the gods” or “elixir of life”. Producing alcohol since 1948, they use all 6-row Indian barley which is transported to the distillery in Bengaluru, the garden city of India, 3,000 feet above sea level and has a tropical climate.
Research done in Scotland has shown that Amrut Single Malt Whisky aged in Bangalore, India ages approximately 3.5 times faster than Scottish-aged whisky. This is due to the altitude of 3000 ft above sea level and the constant climate temperature of 78 degrees F. If on average an Amrut Whisky is aged for 4.5 years in Bangalore, then it has the smoothness and profile of a Whisky aged in Scotland for 12 – 15 years.
This is a special single cask selected by Amrut’s Distributor in the Maryland/DC market, Prestige-Ledroit. They went to the distillery in India to celebrate Amrut’s 75th Anniversary and chose one of the first 8YR private casks for the US market.
