1 Million Cases in Sales - Seagram's 100 Pipers Becomes the First and Only Scotch Brand in India to Smash the Record, yet again
New Delhi, Delhi, India
Seagram’s 100 Pipers, the largest selling Scotch whisky in India, continues to achieve bigger milestones and set new benchmarks in the industry. It has proven itself to be a market leader, thought leader, and innovation leader. In the last business cycle, Jul’20 - Jun’21, 100 Pipers has broken not one but two records.
100 Pipers became the first & only Scotch brand in India to cross the 1 Million+ case mark in annual sales, twice - a solid stamp on the consumers’ love for the brand.
Adding to this success streak, the brand’s premium variant ‘100 Pipers Blended Scotch, Aged 12 years’ crossed 100,000 Cases in annual sales for the first time ever since its launch in 2012. A notable performance by the aged variant – it is now the largest selling 12-Year-Old Scotch in India, confirming that “Age Matters” to the discerning Indian scotch aficionado.
Asserting its dominance in the Scotch whisky market, the brand had recently launched a new variant ‘100 Pipers Blended Malt Scotch, Aged 8 Years’. This is the first & only ‘100% Malt’ Scotch offering in the Standard Scotch category – a game-changing innovation by 100 Pipers.
With a global footprint spanning 8 countries across Asia, Europe, Africa, Middle East & South America, 100 Pipers brings a truly international experience to the Indian consumers, with the widest range of unique Scotch variants. It is also the 2nd largest Scotch whisky in Asia.
Commenting on the multiple achievements, Kartik Mohindra, Chief Marketing Officer, Pernod Ricard India said, “100 Pipers continues to shape the Indian Scotch segment & set new records. This is driven by its increased popularity among the younger, aspirational consumers who are resonating strongly with the brand’s purpose-led initiatives due to their uniqueness, authenticity & credibility."
As the largest whisky market in the world, India’s scotch segment continues to be highly aspirational for whisky consumers. With sales hitting bigger benchmarks across variants and a keen eye on leading innovation, Seagram's 100 Pipers is poised to continue as the dominant force in the market.

True to its commitment of investing in 'Make in India', French gourmet flavour business, Georges MONIN SAS (MONIN) has announced an investment of INR 200 crores for its first phase of setting up the manufacturing plant in Telangana. MONIN had signed an MoU with the Department of Industries & Commerce, in 2018 Telangana and announced an initial investment of INR 100 crores to set up a manufacturing plant in India. The French business has since opened its wholly owned subsidiary in Hyderabad as MONIN India Pvt. Ltd and has acquired 40 acres of land for its manufacturing site. It has also set up an in-house R&D centre in Hyderabad which is key to understanding the Indian flavour palette and developing new flavours and product categories on top of MONIN’s existing range of popular flavours.
Despite the setback due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the French company has now doubled its investment for the plant, targeting completion by 2023. "With the increased investment of 200 crores, India remains a top-priority market for MONIN," says Olivier Monin, Chairman, Georges MONIN SAS. "We have come a long way since our first tryst with India 23 years ago - from supplying our portfolio through a single distributor, to setting up our subsidiary and R&D centre and now on a steady path towards an entire green-field facility – it has been nothing short of a resilient success story for our family-run business, and we have India to thank for it."
Known to derive inspiration from connecting with communities and driving innovation, MONIN has also announced its first state-of-the-art MONIN studio in India, at The Dhan Mill, New Delhi. This unique experience centre, set to open by second half of August, would be vital to engage with the local Horeca professionals and create unique tasting experiences around MONIN products in the country. "MONIN brings more than a century of traditional artisanal beverage know-how to cater to Indian hospitality professionals and consumers," says Germain Araud, Managing Director, MONIN India Pvt. Ltd. MONIN is globally renowned as the brand of choice for hospitality professionals (bartenders and baristas). With over 150 flavours across 150 countries, MONIN has sold over 100 million bottles all over the world.
