A Melting Pot of Flavors and Techniques
Indian whiskey stands out for its distinct distillation process. Unlike many other whisky-producing regions, Indian distilleries often use a combination of pot stills and column stills, creating a complex and layered spirit. The country's diverse climate, with its extreme temperature variations, also plays a pivotal role in whisky maturation. These factors result in Indian whisky offering a unique flavour profile, often characterised by fruity, spicy, and floral notes.
Embracing Indian Whisky: The Journey from Grains to Oak Barrels
The production of Indian whisky begins with carefully selected grains, such as barley, corn, or wheat. These grains are mashed, fermented, and distilled to create a high-proof spirit. What sets Indian whisky apart is its aging process. Most Indian whiskies are aged in oak barrels, allowing them to interact with the wood and absorb the rich flavours, textures, and colours from the environment. The tropical climate accelerates this aging, making Indian whisky mature faster than its counterparts in cooler regions.
