Bangalore Malt Whisky was the fastest­-growing million-­case-plus spirit brand in 2017 – the second consecutive time it has clinched the title – with enormous gains of almost 70%. The Indian whisky’s volumes have grown from 100,000 cases in 2013 to 3.5m a mere four years later.

Owned by John Distilleries, Bangalore has executed a plan for national expansion in its domestic market over recent years, and its potential has not gone unnoticed by international drinks groups. Last October, US-­based Sazerac bought an equity stake in John Distilleries for an undisclosed sum.
