Fantastic Friday at the Classic Malts Selection Lounge at Lakme Fashion Week 2018

#LFW2018 is a classic example of how fashion has reached to a top level. Lakme fashion week tells you that fashion is what you wear, eat and what you drink. This is how we landed at the Classic Malts Selection Lounge AT LFW, where whisky turned the table into good chat and conversation between friends. Though I don’t drink, but learning about the heritage and history of single malts was a great experience.

Let me tell you the basics about whisky.

Whisky is a type of distilled alcoholic beverage made from fermented grain mash. Whisky is typically aged in wooden casks made of charred white oak. It is a strictly regulated spirit worldwide with many classes and types. The typical unifying characteristics of all types of Whisky are the fermentation of grains, distillation and aging in wooden barrels.
