About this deal

Distilled in the ‘plant capital’ of Bangalore, each unit is matured in American Oak Barrels and filtered straight into the bottles to sustain its natural flavour and colour. The nose has aromas of vanilla, citrus, raisins and malted barely with a touch of saline minerality. Amrut Greedy Angels 8-year-old 2nd release is another milestone in Amrut Distilleries' innovative exploration of the world of single malt whisky.

Amrut Distillery in Bangalore, India is one of the great success stories of world whisky and proof that excellent whisky can be produced anywhere in the world if the approach is right. Following the UK launch, the brand spread across Western Europe and the Scandinavian countries within two years.

They were the first Indian distillery to release a single malt and they continue to make whisky that can rival that from Scotland. While the whisky threatens to be completely overpowering, the balance on the finish is nothing short of ground breaking. Definite barley and honey, a little bit of spice with an almost apple cider finish that quickly disappates and I'm left with just pure honey coating the inside of my mouth. Amrut mainly uses American white oak casks, but since the distillery has garnered in international reputation and the demand has risen, they have also started to use sherry casks and other types of casks.

Made by mixing unpeated Indian barley with peated Scottish barley in the mashbill and bottled at a no-nonsense 50%, Amrut Fusion was a sensation when it first appeared in 2009 and remains a top class mix of deliciously clean barley and fruity notes with a strong peaty undertone. Amrut (अमृत) or amrit is a Sanskrit word which can be translated as "nectar of the gods", [2] [3] "nectar of life", [4] or "drink of the gods". Amrut whisky has gained global recognition with a series of awards and accolades and they continue to win over whisky lovers the world over. From Indian Whisky pioneer Amrut, this expression is the first triple distilled Single Malt from India.

The climate in India has a real influence on the shape of the product and it is said that 15% is lost each year during maturation, which means that we are unlikely to ever see an Amrut expression beyond 7 or 8 years old. An oral delight, it is something of a roller-coaster ride, with a lemon citrus nose and an intense, bittersweet taste on the palate. The driver will input your year of birth into their device and may then require an ID check to complete the age verification process. In Indian mythology, when the gods and rakshasas (demons) churned the ocean using the mountain Meru, a golden pot sprang out containing 'Amrut' – the elixir of life. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The company decided against using computers and automation in their distillery in favour of providing more jobs to people. The word 'Amrut' derives its origin from the historic language of Sanskrit and means the 'Elixir of Life'. The result is a lightly peated whisky with a complex oaky aroma and chocolate fudge sweetness on the palate.Although Amrut was established in 1948, it wasn’t until 2004 that the distillery first produced single malt whisky. I had the opportunity to taste a number of Amrut whiskies at a local Whiskey Bar and Museum, so I knew that I already liked Amrut. The whisky is generally aged for four-and-a-half years, although it may be higher for some variants.
