Barleys from Himalaya
It is at the foot of the Himalaya mountains, in the fertile plains of Punjab and Rajasthan regions, that the barleys selected by Amrut is grown. The cereal is then sent to Bangalore where it is malted and transformed. The distillery also sources a peated malt from Scotland, for the elaboration of certain expressions.
