He established Amrut Distilleries in 1948. Manufacturing “Indian made foreign liquors” as it referred to during the British days.
Amrut Single Malt Whisky is a product of 20 years of research, by Amrut Distillers Ltd, into producing high quality malt whisky matching world standards.
The whisky is made from select Indian malted barley grown in Punjab and Rajasthan, the north-west frontier States of India.
In Punjab, the waters from the great Himalayas flow through the river Sutlej and irrigate the land under the Bhakra Nangal dam scheme. The cold winters and fiery summers create a unique quality of grain, rich in flavour.
Malting takes places at maltsters in Jaipur and Delhi to the high standards laid down by ADL. Then is transported to the south of India to the distillery in Bangalore.
Where it is carefully mashed and distilled in small batches to preserve the natural aromas.
The whisky then undergoes maturation in imported oak barrels for over three years in a unique tropical condition at the warehouses on the Distillery premises in Bangalore.
