Most whisky made in India isn't whisky at all - at least if it is held to the standards enforced in Europe by the Scotch Whisky association. Most of the whisky brands from India are based on Molasses, so actually have more in common with Rum than they do with whisky.
There are two notable exceptions to this in the Amrut and Paul John distilleries which specialise in quality single malt whisky.
Amrut takes it's name from a story in ancient Indian mythology where the gods and demons churned the sea using the mountain of Meru. This act caused a golden pot to spring out of the ocean. Inside the pot was the Elixir of Life, which was called the Amrut. Amrut sources its barley from the foot of the Himalayas and mature their whiskies at 3,000 feet above sea level. Amrut have carved out a reputation a experimental whisky producers, especially when it comes to cask finishing and maturation.
Paul John is based out of Goa and pride themselves on the quality of their single malt whisky. They have released peated, unpeated and single barrel expressions in the past all of which have won awards around the world.
