Nestled under the lush, green hills of the Kathmandu Valley, awash with fresh spring waters and cool temperature, stands the Nepal Distillery Pvt. Ltd.
Within the calm and peace buzzes a workforce, a partnership between the past and the present, the people and the technology, the traditions and the breakthroughs. You can hear the rhythm of rum the minute you walk in. Giant oak vats stand alongside traditional barrels as though conversations between times never cease. Sleek machines engage with the human touch that takes you back to what was good about beginnings and where it has brought us today.
You can even feel the senses of the very first master blenders unfurl with joy.
A smooth, full-bodied, intricately flavoured rum can give you an experience that warms your heart with style. Khukri does exactly that, except it does more. Through Khukri, you can taste a humble history of rum connoisseurs striving to make the best blend there is, and succeeding. You can go back to a taste that lingered in people’s mouths when they sipped our rum for the first time, and told each other stories.
