Leave the Trail with The Great Indian Single Malt
“Eight bolls of malt to Friar John Cor, by order of the King, wherewith to make aqua vitae”, said the Empire’s Exchequer Rolls from 1494. That was the earliest record of distilling Single Malt in Scotland. But legend has it that distillation was already a well-established process by then. Once the preserve of the highlands and lowlands of Scotland, Single Malts have traversed a historic journey. In the recent past, they forayed into the new world, with skilled distillers creating their own signature expressions. Countries like Japan, Australia and the US have made their mark. But India was an unexpected surprise.
The colonial connection brought Single Malts to the shores of India. But it wasn’t until recently that India made any significant impression. Our Chairman, Mr Paul John, believed enough to break convention and create a masterpiece that distilled the very essence of India. He dreamed of breaking into the higher echelons of the Single Malt world. And wished to create not just any whisky, but The Great Indian Single Malt. He was brave enough to leave the trail. And challenge the world of connoisseurs to follow suit.
From the very first dram we created, to our newest creation, we’ve done the unexpected. It has earned us much respect, appreciation and steadfast following in a very short span of time. We have a long way to go and our journey along the road less taken has just begun. We urge you to come along. And leave the trail with The Great Indian Single Malt.
