Oaksmith is a premium Indian whisky crafted by Suntory’s Chief Blender, Shinji Fukuyo and combines the finest Scotch Malts and smoothest American Bourbons using unmatched Japanese blending techniques, bringing best of East and West. These awards are a true honor and testament to the very reason Oaksmith was launched in India - to be a brand of choice for all, while continuing to offer a premium experience to our Indian consumers. We are extremely delighted that both blend variants ‘Oaksmith Gold’ and ‘Oaksmith International’ performed so well at these global award platforms.”
