Whisky Lady in India – Celebrating 500 posts!!

For an avid amateur, I’m exceedingly pleased to share another Whisky Lady in India milestone!!

When I reached 100 posts with 100 whiskies, I couldn’t believe it was possible. Then 200 posts, 300 posts… and today 500 posts! Clearly whisky tasting and sharing of these experiences is no accident…

Who would have thought it?

When a group of friends first came together in 2011 in Mumbai, would we manage to keep meeting every month – even now!?

When jotting down a few notes, then sharing on Everyday Asia… became by late 2014 its own full-fledged blog “Whisky Lady in India“…

When the Whisky Ladies of Mumbai was founded mid-2015.. with our often merry slant, wry humour and pointed insight… no missish maids but women who can hold their own in any forum! Including any big boys of whisky.

When the Bombay Malt & Cigar gents joined the fray in 2016… enabling exclusive and dare I say access to wish list type whiskies. The Balblair 38 year ($1,600) or Laphroaig 21 year T5 ($2,250) come to mind…

When I attended my 1st Whisky Live in Singapore… from the Collectors Room to Master Classes and so much more…

When I went on my 1st distillery tour at the Crown Royal plant in my home province of Manitoba, Canada.

And by 2017, with three Mumbai based Whisky Clubs going strong, travels continuing to augment the adventures … I made it to a whisky distillery in my adopted home India – Paul John. Wondered at The Whisky Exchange’s Sukhinder Singh’s remarkable collection… So many more amazing opportunities, tasting events, completely unexpected club contributions and more!

So here we are…. 500 posts. Over 3,000 followers. And it feels like the fun is just beginning!!

Thank you for joining the journey!! Slainte mhath!!

Whisky Lady in India celebrates 300 posts!

At 300 posts, clearly “Whisky Lady in India” is more than just a passing fancy… And while I remain an ‘avid amateur,’ decided it was time to ‘grow up’ and graduate to a real live ‘adult’ and ‘official’ domain…

So please join me in welcoming….

WhiskyLady.coWhisky Ladies 1st Anniversary - Padmini

The focus will still remain on sharing tasting notes from all the wonderful whiskies we manage to bring into India, augmented by a scattering of whisky adventures in other locales.

Most of all… for those that have been part of this journey – Thank you!!

None of this would have been possible without my fellow merry malt adventurers in the Mumbai whisky clubs, miniatures tastings, plus whisky bloggers kind enough to share a sample (or a dozen!). Sprinkle in a few events, complimentary drams, a whisky evening here or there and you have yourself three-oh-oh posts!

Over the next few months, you may see a few changes… starting with new pages featuring whiskies with tasting note links by categories:

Thanks for tuning in, commenting, sharing and more!
