Distilled in the 'plant capital' of Bangalore, each unit is matured in American Oak Barrels and filtered straight into the bottles to sustain its natural flavour and colour. John Hansell, editor of American magazine Whisky Advocate, wrote that "India's Amrut distillery changed the way many think of Indian whisky – that it was, in the past, just cheap Scotch whisky blended with who knows what and sold as Indian whisky.

Distilled in the ‘plant capital’ of Bangalore, each unit is matured in American Oak Barrels and filtered straight into the bottles to sustain its natural flavour and colour. Apart from the Scottish single malts I was already a fan of Japanese malts, so an Indian malt was interesting when I got it for a Christmas present. The distillery produces 4 million cases of liquor a year, of which about 25% are blended whisky and around 10,000 cases are Amrut single malt. The word 'Amrut' derives its origin from the historic language of Sanskrit and means the 'Elixir of Life'.The fraction lost to evaporation during ageing, 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%. Definite barley and honey, a little bit of spice with an almost apple cider finish that quickly disappates and I'm left with just pure honey coating the inside of my mouth. Nose: Heavy, thickly oaked and complex: some curious barley-sugar notes here shrouded in soft smoke. Amurt Single malt whisky is made from selected Indian Barley grown in the foothills of the Himalayas. Four years is a long time for aging in India, as the arm weather found there encourages rapid aging.
