What is a Pure Malt Whisky

A Pure Malt, also known as a blended malt, is a type of whisky crafted by blending various single malts distilled twice in traditional pot stills. These single malts undergo maturation in oak barrels. Each distillery contributes a distinct flavor profile influenced by factors such as geographical location, raw materials, production process, and the characteristics of the barrels used. We embark on a global journey to assess and select diverse styles of single malts. These carefully chosen single malts are then blended with our Indian single malt to create the exceptional Spirit of Victory 1999 Pure Malt.
