AMRUT Distilleries Ltd is the KING of INDIAN SINGLE MALT WHISKIES. It is best known for its eponymous AMRUT brand of single malt whisky, which is the first single malt whisky to be made in India.

The brand became famous after world famous whisky connoisseur Jim Murray gave AMRUT FUSION a stellar 97.5 point rating in 2010. Murray named Amrut Fusion single malt whisky as the third best in the world and whisky heads began to turn.

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. Amrut is making whisky, and it's very good". Amrut Indian Single Malt Whisky is crafted in Bengaluru India.

The core range of Indian Single Malt Whiskies includes Single Malt 46%, Cask Strength, Peated and Peated Cask Strength, whiskies to be enjoyed often.

Notes of oak on the nose. Light amber color. Slick mouthfeel. Hints of vanilla, oak, apricot pit, and almonds. Finishes warm with a lasting finish.
