Indian drinks company Shaw Wallace is to start selling Scotch whiskey producer Kyndal's brands in India by June, a senior Shaw Wallace official is quoted as saying in press reports today.

The two drinks companies announced a marketing alliance late last year  in India to drive sales of Kyndal brands, such as Whyte & Mackay, in India. Conversely Kyndal will help sell Shaw Wallace brands abroad.

"We will start marketing the Kyndal brands in the first quarter of the next financial year [April to June]," Shaw Wallace vice president for liquor marketing N.P. Thirukode told Reuters.

Thirukode said Kyndal was likely to start selling Shaw Wallace's brands overseas "shortly", but did not elaborate.
