New Delhi, Dec 7 Spirits have gained Indian
drinkers' preference vote for one simple reason - pocket-
friendliness and given a choice and a long evening of heavy
binge drinking ahead of them, most of them will opt for the
strong spirits rather than wine, says a new book.
In "The Indian Spirit: The Untold Story of Drinking in
India", wine connoisseur Magandeep Singh tells readers how to
enjoy their drink while relishing the unique story of how it
reached their glasses.
"India loves its spirits. For one simple reason, spirits
have gained the Indian drinkers' preference vote - pocket-
friendliness. Not to say that we don't make some good spirits
- we do, really - but when you break down costs drink for
drink, nothing gets you higher for lesser," argues Singh.
He says wine was never native to India.
"They imported it, drank it, and eventually even made
some, but it was never the tipple to win any consumer choice
awards. More than 2000 years ago, it was an elitist drink.
Surprisingly since then, a lot has evolved but this attitude
has pretty much remained unchanged," he writes in the book,
published by Penguin Random House.
Wine, according to him, in India is only a fad and is not
consumed as frequently or as comfortably as any strong spirit.
"It costs a lot for one, a major deterrent to sales and
proliferation. A bottle of wine is good for two people, at
best, but costs the same as a bottle of spirit which could
sort out at least half a dozen of our friends. We as Indians
don?t drink wine enough, preferring spirits which are clearly
the pocket-friendly choice," Singh writes.
"Given a choice, and a long evening of heavy binge
drinking ahead of them, they will mostly opt for spirits. This
explains the overall unimpressive volume of wine as compared
to the figures for whisky, vodka or even beer: it's not
because we lack a degree of culture or an idea of how to pair
wines with food. We just understand economics better," he
Singh, a French-qualified sommelier, describes his book
as a narrative on alcohol, one that flows through the history
of this glorious country.
"It's an observation on the love-hate (but mostly love)
relationship that alcohol in all its delicious forms has had
with the subcontinent."
Dark spirits dominate in the market, he says, adding
white spirits may show more growth potential - double-digit
percentage growth year on year - but in volumes they remain a
tiny blip as compared to the dark spirit sales figures.
"The southern states are generally ruled by brandy
(Telangana and Andhra Pradesh prefer whisky but Kerala and
Tamil Nadu are brandy bastions) while most of the north is
whisky county. In the middle as also in the metros, the
figures are mixed.
"The big city is where one finds vodka consumption the
highest; the trend shows a distinct positive streak around
university campuses, student accommodation, or establishments
that have loud music and a dance floor for daytime revelry,"
the book says.
