Indian single malt
Kamet Single Malt is produced at the foot of Mount Kamet, the third highest peak of the Indian Himalayas. The lands on the mountain’s foot are fertile and provide perfect conditions to cultivate barley. Furthermore, the extreme climat conditions (varying from 0-50 degrees) have a big impact on the maturing whisky. As a result the angel’s share is as high as 11-12% per year.
Piccadilly Distillery, producer of Kamet whisky, is operating since 2012. The distillery has Scottish style pot stills, which create a light, floral and fruity style whisky. In addition the distillery also has its own small cooperage, providing the distillery with different cask varieties.
Kamet Single Malt is a blend of whiskies matured in ex-Bourbon (American oak), ex-wine (French oak) and ex-Sherry casks.

Kamet's story begins at the base of Mt. Kamet, the third highest peak in the Indian Himalayas. From here the Kamet foothills unfold into verdant plains where the fertile soils become a patchwork cut by mountain fed streams. For thousands of years the lands beneath Kamet have been a breadbasket for the Indian people providing water and agricultural sustenance.
