Amrut Peated Indian Single Malt – DECEMBER 2022
Amrut, a Sanskrit word translated as “Elixir of Life”, was established in 1948 and the first Indian distillery to release a single malt.
This whisky was distilled in small batches in Bengaluru, the Garden City of India, 3,000 feet above sea level, from barley that has been malted and dried over peat fires in Scotland. The local tropical climate means that it reaches maturity quicker, but the angel’s share can be as high as 15% per year!
