The last few years have seen a variety of premium Indian homegrown gin, rum and whiskey labels have their moment and rightly so for all those who love them. So where does vodka stand in this sudden flurry of demand? Indian bartenders, bar managers and mixologists believe it is very much here and has stood the test of time, and will continue to do so, come what may. Since vodka is tasteless, colourless and odourless, bar experts say it is a bartender’s best friend because they can easily play around with its flavours, to produce something absolutely new. In fact, it is this very ability, they say, that has led to its evolution in India over the years and made it an important part of the country’s craft cocktail revolution.
