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.
