About this deal

The water used in the manufacturing process is transported to the distillery by truck from a well, 15 miles (24 km) away, in a pesticide-free agricultural area owned by the company. From Indian Whisky pioneer Amrut, this expression is the first triple distilled Single Malt from India. Amrut is an early Sanskrit word translating to “nectar of the gods”, although the original details of what this exact substance was remains unknown – it was believed that those who drank it would be guaranteed immortality! The fraction lost to evaporation during aging, known as the angels' share, is also higher in India, at 11–12% per year, than in Scotland, where the annual evaporative loss is about 2%. According to Neelakanta Jagdale, "From a marketing perspective, we thought if our product had to pass the test, why not do so in the toughest location.

Amrut mainly uses American white oak casks, but since the distillery has garnered in international reputation and the demand has risen, they have also started to use sherry casks and other types of casks. Amrut Greedy Angels was a limited edition 50% abv, 8-year-old single malt whisky released in April 2013.This single malt whisky is produced with Indian barley using water flowing from the Great Himalayas at Amrut distillery outside Bangalore, India.

In Indian mythology, when the gods and rakshasas (demons) churned the ocean using the mountain Meru, a golden pot sprang out containing 'Amrut' – the elixir of life.

The smoky peat tastes like barbecued trout and drifts in and out, making smoke rings round the sweet, malty heart. The company also feels that "the high entry costs and complex excise laws in different states are a deterrent to further expansion in India". It is marketed without an age statement and has been matured for approximately four years before it is bottled at 46% abv. To retain the natural character of this oak aged Indian Malt Whisky it is not chill filtered and is bottled in its natural colour.

Amrut presents this product as a humble tribute to the Indian farmer, who has grown this barley with care and affection with which he has tilled the soil.

Made by mixing unpeated Indian barley with peated Scottish barley in the mashbill and bottled at a no-nonsense 50%, Amrut Fusion was a sensation when it first appeared in 2009 and remains a top class mix of deliciously clean barley and fruity notes with a strong peaty undertone.This is a young whisky, but balanced and built around a clean and sweet barley core, with toffee and vanilla at its center. Barley is procured from Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan, while the peated barley is imported from Scotland. In 2001, Neelakanta Rao Jagdale asked his son Rakshit Jagdale, who was pursuing an MBA course in Newcastle, England at the time, to investigate the potential of exporting their products to that country.
