    New whiskey markets impact?

    India is the world's largest whiskey market and China is developing:

    Can domestic distillers meet future demand?
    What will be the impact on domestic prices and availability of certain premium products?
    I suppose the possible impacts are a good reason to buy now and hold for future contingecies...budget willing.

    I am glad Four Roses now distributes more product domestically but I would hate to see the prior practice of exporting the best and leaving the U.S. market with fewer premiums and more blends. The Scottish distillers have been able to meet worldwide demand...but the price reflects it.

    Of course what they call " whisky" in India, is what the rest of the world calls "rum".

    Except for a new distillery called, "Amrut". Lightly peated single malt that is actually pretty darn good.

    An Indian friend of mine tells me they drink a lot of Scotch in India. Makes sense, seeing as how India was colonized by the British.

    Cheers!

    It would make more sense if India was colonized by the Scottish.

    The Scots were already on board when the colonization started. Plus the English drink a lot of Scotch too.

    Well, on the surface maybe. The British drink a lot of tea. The bulk of which comes from India. Tea plantations will often shade the tea plants with big rosewood trees. Eventually they get cut down and the harvested wood is often sent to the U.S. to be used in guitarmaking. Symbiosis at its finest!

    Cheers!
