This holiday, play to the tunes of 100 Pipers
India is a huge fan of whiskies and there is nothing more relaxing than a dram of fine scotch after a long working day. Usually, Indian whisky lovers have an affinity for a glass with soda and a plate of chicken tikka. But things are changing as more spirit lovers move towards suave blends and fancy food pairings after the excitement of their first few encounters with the amber liquid.
Seagram's 100 Pipers scotch whisky is an excellent option for this transformation. The name of this premium whisky originates from the Scottish tradition of bagpipers leading soldiers to the battlefield. 100 Pipers is a reference to the famous Scottish ballad ‘The Hundred Pipers’ that depicts the tale of Bonnie Prince Charlie's heroics in the Jacobite uprising of 1745. It is said that his troops were led by a hundred bagpipers.
Today, 100 Pipers is a leading whisky brand in India and several countries around the world, including Australia, Spain, Thailand, and Venezuela. And since the winter holidays are just around the corner, we are presenting you with some spirit tuning ideas.
