Suntory Whisky Toki

Toki means Time


Toki signifies "time" in Japanese. The House of Suntory’s fourth Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo brought the grain component of the blend from the Chita distillery, where the heavy-type grain whisky is distilled only twice on column stills, and is sweet and vanilla-rich in its unblended state. He sourced the malt component from the Hakushu distillery, which produces light, fruity malt similar to many Speyside distilleries. These seemingly dissimilar but deeply accordant whiskies, together with select Yamazaki malts for additional depth and complexity gave rise to the exquisite, silky taste, distinctive character and bold innovation of the blended Suntory Whisky Toki.

Highbury Classic Whisky

This one sees a honey and smoke finish


Bottled in Goa, Highbury Classic Whisky has layered complexity that can only stem from double charred wood which leaves it with caramel biscuits notes, with hints of berries and touch of peat that lingers just long enough. The smoothness of the seasoned malt ensures that every sip has a consistent pleasing sense of taste and is generously satisfying. The master blender’s pursuit of a perfect blend with his passion has resulted in this becoming everyone’s favourite Whisky drink. On the palate it sees taste of Raisins and stone fruits with hints of cinnamon spice and a dash of vanilla rounded off with Oakwood

Oaken Glow is India’s first premium smoky whisky that has introduced consumers to a new and undiscovered segment.

Tearing up the rule book of traditional whisky making, Oaken Glow has introduced discerning consumers to the unique innovation of a peat fired whisky.

Distilled in copper stills, Oaken Glow is aged in seasoned oak casks which lend it a unique hue and adds to its glow.
