A single malt with enough flavor and power to align your chakras

The distillery's name — Amrut — comes from Indian mythology, translating as “Elixir of Life” from Sanskrit. Perfect, right? The distillery was founded in 1948. But while other local distilling shops in India were focused on low-cost production, the entire history of Amrut has been a story of improvement, quality, and taste. They really care, and that shows in all of the progress and growth they have experienced over the years. Today, they produce a range of eleven core Whiskies and a few special editions, all tasty-good. In 2010, no less than Jim Murray called Amrut Single Malt the “Third Finest Whisky in the World.” John Hansell of The Whiskey Advocate has raved as well, and we think that you’ll love it too.

“Portonova” literally means “new port” in Portuguese. But in his case, not “new port” in the ship and dock sense, but “new Port” as in Port Wine. Amrut Portonova Indian Single Malt is Amrut's now famous and award-winning Single Malt Whisky aged first in ex-Bourbon casks, then finished in Port Wine pipes (special narrower casks) imported from Portugal. And importantly, it’s bottled at a SERIOUS 62.1% ABV — making this Bangalore-born dram a flavor-packed powerhouse of cask-strength Whisky wonder.

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
The water source is a local well 24 km away from the distillery. The water travels a long distance before being used.
The Bangalore distillery employs 450 people, and everything, including packaging is done by hand.
Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
