India’s fondness for whisky runs deep. While beer holds sway over alcohol sales in many Asian nations, whisky takes the crown in India. Despite its leading position in consumption, India has often stood in the shadow of whisky giants like Scotland, Japan, Ireland, and the US in terms of production. However, a transformative moment is unfolding, with a growing number of distilleries challenging this narrative by pushing the boundaries of innovation and quality.

According to the “India Whisky Market Outlook, 2027-2028” report by Research and Markets, a well-known market analysis firm, whisky consumption in India is forecasted to surge to 289.49 million cases  by 2027-2028, generating revenues surpassing Rs 287,000 crore. Amidst this landscape of expansion and transformation, numerous Indian whisky brands are emerging as international contenders, captivating enthusiasts globally with their expertise, innovation, and unique flavours.
