Amrut Raj Igala is a whisky produced in India, matured in Bourbon barrels. The name of this whisky, Raj Igala, means “King of the Eagles” and it is not a coincidence that the bird appears on both bottle and packaging. It is created starting with barley selected and cultivated in India. The climate, in which it matured in the barrels, is very particular if confronted with the classic scotch whiskies. Thanks to the elevated temperature, the evaporation rate is very high. All this establishes a different aging process, which gives the distillate unique nuances.
This whisky in not cold-filtered and without any colorants.
