Amrut Fusion was Jim Murray’s Third Finest Whisky in the World for 2010. Amrut Fusion is distilled from barley from Scotland and India, making this a true fusion of countries.
Consistently one of Indian distillery Amrut’s most popular bottles, Fusion is a rich and warming single malt with delicious notes of fresh fruit and vanilla, followed by a smoky finish.
Amrut Fusion is created from a mix of 75% unpeated Indian barley and 25% peated Scottish barley. These are separately distilled and aged for four years, then ‘fused’ together for a further three months. The result is an award-winning whisky that has introduced many people to the splendours of Indian whisky.
Nose: It shows fresh and tinned fruit. peaches, mangos, apricots, plus spicy cinnamon and clove, joined by aromas or Earl Grey tea and just a touch of smoke and sea spray.
Palate: A real hit of fresh fruit and citrus-orange notes, with black pepper and cinnamon adding a zingy layer of spice. Rich and refreshing; absolutely delicious.
Finish: The spice and fruit linger for a long time. Lots of marmalades.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Amrut Fusion
Quote 1 “A very kind and considerate bartender offered it at a recent lunch meeting . I took my time to taste it in the right manner and my god, it turned out to be one of the finest single malts I have ever tasted at 50%. I found the fusion of Indian barley & Scottish barley to be a genius idea. The taste of fresh fruits, tea, smoke and peat gives this single malt. A very good body and aftertaste. Long live Amrut Fusion.”
Quote 2 “Gorgeous profile of passion fruit and loquat of the Amrut Single Malt but way more complex. Those spicy notes with an infant ghosting of smoke and peat. Picked up a bottle in Mumbai a couple years ago and just cracked it open. ”
