Discover Royal Tiger & Two Tigers Whisky

Handcrafted in Goa, India

Royal Tiger Single Malt and Two Tigers Grain Whisky are produced entirely from locally sourced grains, which are hand selected by master distiller, Craig Henriques. The water comes exclusively from a pure, natural spring found on the family estate.

The whiskies are matured in new American white oak barrels, charred to Craig’s exacting standards, and aged in traditional rick houses located on the estate. After aging in the barrels, the single malt whisky is recasked into a newly charred American white oak barrel to finish the maturation and enhance the quality and characteristics of the whisky.

For over 60 years the Henriques family has produced unparalleled whiskies, taking advantage of the pure, private spring located on their estate and Goa’s tropical climate which lends itself to an accelerated aging process.

Royal Tiger is produced with six row barley sourced from the foothills of the Himalayas, and aged in newly charred American white oak barrels.

The culmination of this enterprise is an extraordinary whisky which is certain to please even the most discriminating whisky connoisseur.
