Antiquity

Antiquity Blue is the true blue of whiskies. Made of the finest Indian malts and rare Scotch carefully blended with premium grain spirit, it is painstakingly distilled in copper pot stills, matured and mellowed in imported white oak casks and fused with premium Scotch. The pronounced malt and rich wood aroma, with a whiff of peat and heather supplements the fantasy while its subtle nuances come from the choicest components of the blend, giving it a full smooth flavour and a bouquet that proclaims its royal pedigree. Truly India's finest.

Launched in 1976 by Herbertsons, Bagpiper is now USL's legendary flagship brand. Having become a sell-out in the very first year of its inception, Bagpiper holds the honour of being USL's first 'Millionaire Brand' and also carries the esteemed title of 'The World's Largest Selling Whisky'. Over the decades Bagpiper has attained phenomenal success and is now being exported to 10 countries across the globe. The Bagpiper blend is one that has been carefully crafted and perfected to offer the same rich experience as that of a scotch, and that too at convenient prices. With a light malty aroma and a hint of a smooth woody character, owing to the use of malt spirits specifically matured in pre-identified American oak casks, the Bagpiper experience has been espoused by millions of loyalists over the years.

Bagpiper owns the legacy of being the first whisky brand to sign on Bollywood celebrities as brand ambassadors and for the past 35 years its this Bollywood association and larger than life persona that has built the core identity of the brand. Bagpiper's appeal cuts across demographics to connect with the mass populace. India is a country full of hope and aspirations in the current milieu, and Bagpiper's endeavour has been to be a part of life's journey of its consumer as they strive to accomplish their dreams. Bagpiper plays the role of a motivator by infusing hope and positivity in the quest of their dreams.

Pioneering in celebrity endorsements and movie associations, Bagpiper has been associated with likes of numerous iconic superstars over the years right from the great Ashok Kumar, Jackie Shroff, Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Shahrukh Khan to current superstar Ajay Devgan. These celebrities stand as iconic examples of men who have believed in themselves and have strived to accomplish their dreams. These icons serve as motivators to the aspirers amongst us to continue on their journey with positivity and hope.

In 1993, the brand broke out with its tremendously successful and now legendary 'Khoob Jamega Rang Jab Mil Bhaitenge Teen Yaar.. Aap, Mein Aur Bagpiper' communication with Dharmendra. This promise clearly reinforces the role of the brand to befriend its consumers in their quest for their dreams. Till date, Bagpiper continues to use this legendary sign off which its consumers live, believe and swear by.

Bagpiper has many accolades to its credit as it has been a pioneer in creating value for its consumers. It was the first to launch look-alike pints and nips to synergize all packs. The brand was also one of the first to introduce the "Guala" international capping system and the first to introduce whisky in tetra pack, a tamper proof and convenient pack for consumers. Flaunting a jaunty squat square bottle that embodies the trend in international whisky bottle designs and a distinct black and gold packaging design, Bagpiper sets a benchmark that its industry counterparts can only hope to match. Apart from retaining the leadership position in the popular segment year on year, Bagpiper has bagged a Reader's Digest Gold award as the 'Most trusted brand' in 2006 and features in Impact International's list of 'Top 100 brands', making it one of the most celebrated brands ever from the house of USL. A true legend then, now and for years to come.
