UNIQUE WHISKY EXPERIENCE
Indian Whisky Tours is a proud celebration of the Indian Single Malt. The tour has been carefully curated to give you a deeper understanding of the land from which this exquisite spirit originates.
The tour will take you through a tastefully designed journey of Bangalore and Goa. Along with their rich history, the two regions are also the homes of Amrut and Paul John Distilleries.
Bangalore, the home of Amrut whisky is truly a melting point of Indian culture. Vibrant markets, ancient temples and palaces co-exist with a burgeoning craft brewing culture, cutting edge cuisine and a dynamic young population
The erstwhile Portugese colony of Goa is a wonderful example of how a foreign culture has beautifully woven itself into Indian traditions. Discover what inspires the craftsmen at Paul John as you explore the architecture, cuisine and the nature of Goa.
Wineries, Breweries, Gin distilleries, a Feni Cellar and more are at the beating heart of the Indian craft movement. Experience this and more on your Indian whisky tour with a twist.
