Rampur whisky is available across more than a dozen nations including UK, Germany, Canada, USA, Ghana, Hong Kong, New Zealand, UAE, etc. It’s expected to be available in several EU markets in the foreseeable future. The origins of this whisky can be traced to a small district in western Uttar Pradesh called Rampur; hence the name of this brand. The company that produces Rampur whisky is called Radico Khaitan Ltd.
Radico Khaitan insist that their motto is, “quality over quantity” and this is confirmed by the fact that despite having malts aging for over quarter of a century, the brand never rushed into releasing its offerings.
