Speyside, Scotland

The Speyside Cooperage

Playing host to over 50 distilleries, Speyside has the greatest concentration of malt whisky producers compared to any other whisky producing region of Scotland, including the Highlands (of which Speyside is a sub-region), the Lowlands or the island of Islay.

As a style, Speyside whiskies are usually lighter and sweeter than other Scotch single malts. As they grow older, they develop body. Typical flavour characteristics include green apple, vanilla, oak, dried fruit and nutmeg.

The Speyside region has the vast majority of all the Scotch distilleries, and thus there is a great variation. Aside from the lighter, honeyed single malts, there are also a small group of distilleries which produce a heavily sherried style Speyside whisky. Glenfarclas and The Macallan, for example, produce big bodied whiskies, The Glenlivet and Glenfiddich distilleries produce the most classic, typical Speyside drams, and both are world famous.

Indigo Deli Celebrates 10 Glorious Years!

Indigo Delicatessen took the city by surprise when it opened its doors ten years ago, on June 30, 2005. A whole new concept at the time, “The Deli”, as it’s popularly called, was conceptualized as a restaurant and fine food store to serve the time-restricted, quality conscious diner.

Starting off as a chic New York-style eatery in the hip Colaba area, The Deli’s network has now expanded all over Mumbai, and most recently in New Delhi too, with each restaurant bearing its own unique character. What remains constant though is the feeling of warmth and friendliness, attention to detail and the most important ingredient, love. The love of food, the love of hospitality and the joy associated with watching a diner just dig in!

To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Indigo Deli presents a  power-packed 10 day calendar bringing you the best of special menus, free goodies, contests and more! Starting on the 21st of June with Breakfast like a Boss to Gourmet Burgers and Free Cookies, each day has something special for their patrons. A perfect build up to the big birthday surprise.
