Angus Dundee India Pvt. Ltd., a major player in bulk Scotch supplying to a large stratum of liquor manufacturers in the country for almost a decade, has introduced MacRoys blended Scotch whisky to Indian consumers.
It is available in Punjab and Chhattisgarh (Rs.1,600 and Rs.1,700 per 750-ml pack), and plans are afoot to tap the Telangana, Chandigarh, Rajasthan and Orissa markets in the near future.
MacRoys is distilled, aged and blended in Scotland, and matured in used BB1 barrels. The once-used American Oak Bourbon barrels infuse a distinct character to the whisky.
It is crafted using exclusive malt and matured in Bourbon casks, whose charring produces lactins, which help develop coconut and vanilla characteristics, bringing out soft, fruity-sweet and smooth blend.
The parent company, Scotland-based Angus Dundee Distillers, has two malt distilleries with renowned brands: Tomintoul in the Speyside region and Glencadam in the Highlands.
