Amrut Indian Single Malt is a single malt whisky originating from India. It is the only single malt of Indian origins and its extremely pleasant flavours of apricot, apple malt, of course, and other fruits lend it the confidence of a top-quality single malt.
The unmistakeable taste of Amrut Indian Single Malt is due to the fact that it is aged in oak casks, being very appreciated by connoisseurs, while its golden yellow colour complements it perfectly. The story of this Indian whisky begins with Rakshit Jagdale, a Newcastle student who took on his father’s challenge to sell a unique Scottish-style Indian malt. Once it was created, it was offered to connoisseurs, who thought the single malt was Scottish. The remarkable character of this single malt is strongly influenced by the Indian climate. Approximately 15% of the beverage is lost annually during the maturation period, which is why it is unlikely that the distillery should produce varieties older than 10 years. It has won the Liquid Gold Award - 2014 at Jim Murray’s competition (Jim Murray's Whisky Bible).
The smell of Amrut Indian Single Malt is a friendly association of bittersweet notes, comprising tones of liquorice, nuts, honeycomb, and pralines. Its taste is predominantly sweet, featuring notes of peach, spices, and honey. The finish is long and velvety, balanced out by accents of pralines.
