Diageo India recently announced the launch of Epitome Reserve, India’s first-ever small-batch, artisanal craft, 100% rice whiskey. This limited-edition whiskey has been launched in an exclusive batch of 2,000 numbered bottles.
Epitome Reserve celebrates the immortality and longevity of a banyan tree. The beautiful golden liquid blend is made of locally-sourced rice from Punjab, and matured in Goa in bourbon casks over 3 years. It is then finished in PX Sherry and Cherrywood casks.
A meticulously crafted blend of woody flavours, vibrant characters of rich dried fruits, sweet toffee caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, and rich spicy notes, the liquid is enjoyed neat, on the rocks or with a dash of water.
Epitome Reserve is the first-ever whiskey that comes with the signature of an Indian Master Blender, Mahesh Patil, a personalised nod to the connoisseurs of true craft. It comes in an exquisite, meticulously hand-crafted maple wood pack that brings to life the ethos of the banyan tree.
