Radico Khaitan has lined up the global release of a new single malt Indian whisky. Rampur was unveiled earlier this week at the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America Convention & Exposition in Las Vegas.

Produced as a non-chill filtered single malt, the no-age statement liquid comes from India's largest distillery, which is located in Rampur in the state of Uttar Pradesh. 

Touted as the Kohinoor of single malts, Rampur is presented in canister packaging in a stout bottle with a thick base. The overall appearance is described by the company as "under-stated luxury". There is also an addition of a cork with sleeve and a silk pouch.

In late-2014, Japan's Suntory Holdings was rumoured to be considering a stake purchase in Radico Khaitan, although the group declined to comment on the reports.
