Rampur Jugalbandi #3 WINS ‘BEST WORLD WHISKY’

Jaisalmer Gin Gold Edition WINS 'BEST GIN'

Rampur Luxury Collection WIN Multiple Accolades


Radico Khaitan is delighted to announce that Rampur Jugalbandi #3 has been awarded Best World Whisky and Jaisalmer Gold Indian Craft Gin has been awarded Best Gin at the prestigious John Barleycorn Awards 2024 with 94 points each. The rest of Radico Khaitan’s luxury portfolio were also all awarded top medals with Rampur Jugalbandi #4 and Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin awarded Double Gold medals and Rampur Asava and Rampur Double Cask Indian Single Malt Whiskies and Sangam World Malt Whisky awarded Gold medals. For the first time, Barleycorn took the highest scoring entries from the medals round of the competition and blind tasted them a second time to determine Double Gold evaluations and the best in the category.

The John Barleycorn Awards, known for rewarding excellence in the spirits industry, has recognised the exceptional quality and unique characteristics of Radico Khaitan’s luxury spirits portfolio. Rampur Distillery’s innovative approach to the ageing process of its whiskies distinguishes it from other world whiskies. The Himalayas provide opposite climate conditions throughout the year with the flavour of the famous Indian Summer giving Rampur Whiskies an added dimension and depth. 



The Rampur Jugalbandi #3 has garnered significant acclaim, earning the Best World Whisky at the Barleycorn Awards for 2024. This expression is part of Rampur's innovative Jugalbandi series, which highlights the ancient Indian musical tradition of duet performances, symbolising a harmonious blend of different cask influences.

The Rampur Jugalbandi #3 is a limited-edition Indian single malt whisky matured in American Bourbon barrels and Port wine casks. This combination creates a rich profile with intense tropical fruit notes, hints of mango and lychee, with spices, and a velvety finish with flavours of sweet plum cake, prunes, and vanilla.



Sanjeev Banga, President of International Business at Radico Khaitan Ltd says: “We are delighted to have been awarded the top medals across our portfolio of luxury spirits. We are particularly delighted with the Best World Whisky award for Rampur Jugalbandi #3.  Rampur is currently present in 40+ countries and demand is across nationalities.  It is also one of the most popular and best selling Indian malts in the GTR channel and the quality of our products has been confirmed by the results at the John Barleycorn Awards 2024.”



Jaisalmer Gold Gin has been recognised as the Best Gin at the 2024 Barleycorn Awards. This prestigious accolade highlights the quality and craftsmanship of the gin. The gin is noted for its luxurious blend of 18 botanicals sourced from various parts of India, combined with juniper berries and angelica root from Europe.



“Winning the ‘Best Gin’ at the 2024 Barleycorn Awards, the Jaisalmer Gin Gold Edition has made a significant mark in the beverage market. Our gin's exquisite blend of botanicals and precise distillation techniques have set a new benchmark in the spirits industry. This recognition not only enhances our brand reputation but also solidifies our dedication to delivering unparalleled taste and innovation to gin enthusiasts worldwide” says Kunal Madan, Vice President of International Business at Radico Khaitan.
