The Teacher's Origin pack features a gold and black design

Beam Suntory Inc has launched gift packs in India for two expressions of its Teacher's Scotch whisky brand, Teacher’s Origin and Teacher’s Highland Cream.

The company said today the packs, released in time for India's festive season, feature a prominent gold and black design to stand out on shelves. They come in a range of prices depending on region, with Origin costing between INR1,950 (US$32) and INR2,600 and Highland Cream between INR1,200 amnd INR1,745.

Last year, Beam Inc, which owned Teacher's before it was bought by Suntory Holdings in April, denied that a corruption probe at its India unit had led to the Scotch brand losing its market-leading position in the country.
