About Indian Whisky

About Indian Whisky
Whiskey became part of Indian culture due to the British rule and influence; today, it is quite popular. Much Indian rums is based on molasses, which makes these products actually closer to rum, but in recent decades, traditional whiskeys, made from malted grains, are now being produced and there are even single malts made in India. There are a little more than a dozen distilleries in the country and India is one of the largest producers of whiskey in the world.
