Peter Scotch treads the single malt path

Peter Scotch treads the single malt path

Globally, single malt whiskies may be legion, but when Indian distilleries start to produce single malts – and world class ones at that – it tends to raise many eyebrows.

The Bengaluru- based Khoday Group, known for quality liquor brands such as the legendary Red Knight Whisky and Hercules XXX Rum, added one more feather to its cap by launching Peter Scot Black single malt whisky recently.

The first phase of the launch covered Karnataka, Punjab, Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh, Goa and Maharashtra, and the Union Territories of Daman and Silvassa. You can expect its launch in the remaining states of the country very soon.

At a  blind tasting session curated by the spirits and wine expert, AnkurChawla,  recently, the overall feedback from a mix of Indian and international  single malt lovers was “amazing!”, with many complimentary observations made on its complex layer of flavours.

The whisky, matured in oak wood barrels, has a honey coloured, amber-gold tinge that gives it an ambrosia like look.

Some connoisseurs even made comparisons to international brands like Glenmorangie and Macallan!

“We want to revive our brands and compete with the best out there,” says SatpalChaudhury, COO of Khodays India, who is excited by the buzz the new brand has created.

Competitively priced in a band of Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 4,500 (depending on the excise structure of the state) Peter Scot Black single malt is a great whisky that will definitely have a cult following in the coming years!

The elegantly designed bottle is packed in a black-and-yellow carton and has a golden waistband with the iconic Peter Scot brand prominently emblazoned on it. The attractive Khoday logo at the lower end of the bottle adds to the overall classy effect.
