About Rum  and  Cane Spirits from India
There are numerous spirits produced in India, from vodka and rum to whiskey and eau-de-vie. Certain products are rather commercial, as they are tied into local sporting teams, but quality of the whiskeys, including single malts, is very high. Peach eau-de-vie has tantalizing fruit flavors with a honeyed finish and is quite distinctive.

A wonderfully vibrant and exotic dark rum with great interplay of sweet, spicy, and savory tones.
