The story of Indian Single Malt Whisky begins at Amrut Distillery, in Bangaluru.
The Jagdale family created their first new-make in 2002, and Amrut Indian Single Malt Whisky was launched in Glasgow, Scotland, in 2004.
Turning to ancient Indian legend as inspiration for the Distillery name, legend tells that Angels who sought immortality, churned the mythical Ocean of Milk to obtain the Elixir of Life. They did this using Mount Mandara as the pestle and the devine serpent Adhishesha as the rope. After much churning, Amrut emerged — the drink that confers immortality.
As they also aim to produce drinks that offer lasting pleasure, the founders of the distillery though it apt to name it Amrut.
