Antiquity Blue Whisky
Antiquity Blue is the true blue of whiskies. Made of the finest Indian malts and rare Scotch carefully blended with premium grain spirit, it is painstakingly distilled in copper pot stills, matured and mellowed in imported white oak casks and fused with premium Scotch. The pronounced malt and rich wood aroma, with a whiff of peat and heather supplements the fantasy while its subtle nuances come from the choicest components of the blend, giving it a full smooth flavour and a bouquet that proclaims its royal pedigree. Truly India's finest. Know more about the various Whisky Brands in India.
History of Antiquity Blue
In 1826, Robert Stein from Scotland pioneered the art of grain whiskey at Cameron bridge Distillery. Today, Antiquity Blue is blended with the finest grain-based Scotch whisky in the same distillery in copper pot stills that Stein invented, using identical process of grain distillation.
Antiquity whisky was originally established by Shaw Wallace and Company LTD (SWC) in 1992, and later was acquired by United Spirits Ltd (USL), a subsidiary of the United Breweries Group (UB Group) in July 2005. Later in April 2008, Shaw Wallace and USL merged, making Antiquity Blue an official USL brand. In the United States, Antiquity Whisky was introduced by American United Beer and Spirits (UBS) at the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) Conference, which was held in Las Vegas from April 2-April 5, 2012. Antiquity Blue was also launched in China as the Antiquity Blue Rare Premium on May 11 2007, at the time being the most expensive Indian-made whisky.
