Himalaya’s best keep secret is at last here: Amrut whisky, a real nectar of Gods

Amrut is as old as the history of independent India. Founded in 1948 by Shri Jaddale N. Radhakrisna under the name of Amrut Laboratories.

All started as a small liquor blending plant and a bottling unit. Amrut foray into market with a dark rum, Amrut XXX and Silver Cup Brandy and catering to Indian armed forces.
