On many occasions in the past I was asked about a sherried whisky from Amrut Distillery by many consumers and Importers alike. When we thought about this, there were few real problems on procuring the sherry cask itself. As a first step, we wanted to make sure that there is no sulphur present in the casks. Secondly, shipping the sherry butts from Spain to Bangalore was going to be a nightmare. When the shipment sails from Spain, it was going to go through huge temperature changes and by the time it reached the port of Chennai (Madras) it would be 30 + degree Celsius. A marvellous idea came to us. . We instructed the supplier NOT to add any sulphur and also to drain any residual sherry in the cask completely. We shipped few cases of Amrut Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky to the cooperage in Spain and asked them to fill each of the Sherry Butts with few cases of the malt., seal it and roll it few times. The logic behind this idea was cask strength whisky at 61.9% will more likely to act as a kind of ‘bacteria killer’. Amazingly it worked! Casks came through intact.
Once we filled the Sherry Butts, we wanted to avoid a normal sherry finish as other distillery does. Our concern was that the sherry’s influence should not suppress the ‘Amrut Characters’ in the whisky. We emptied the Butts and filled the whisky back into Bourbon Casks for close to a year. We drew some samples, and could not believe it!; an essay in elegance. No trace of sulphur what so ever. It was like a sherry ‘Sandwich’ and fused well with Bourbon notes. ‘Amrut Intermediate Sherry Matured’ has born. Again we are not aware if any other distiller has coined a phrase like this before and it is exactly how the whisky was produced. We may claim it as world’s first Intermediate Sherry Matured Whisky!
