These uber-refined and smooth agave spirits, distilled in small batch pot-stills, are the top of the line of DesmondJi Spirits. The agave plants are grown in the red and black volcanic soils of India's Deccan Plateau and nourished in a semi-arid micro-climate similar to that of Central America.
51% Agave Oak Finish
Made from blue-green agave that has matured for at least 8 years in the Deccan Plateau and carefully distilled in artisanal, small batch pot-stills, this refined spirit lounges awhile with charred oak to yield a warm and mellow accomplice.
Made in artisanal Brazilian CachaÇa-style, this refined and smooth, 100% pure sugarcane spirit is distilled in small batch pot-stills made from specially selected sugarcane species growing in India's Deccan Plateau.
Margarita | Blue Margaraita
A ready to serve alcoholic blends ideal to make Margarita cocktails of your choice.
Orange Liquer | Blue Curaçao
A smooth blend of premium Indian grain spirits, pure sugars crystalised from India's lush sugarcane fields, and the natural essential oils of renowned sun-kissed oranges from the Nagpur region of India, with a gentle hint of bitter.
Agave India is the brainchild of Desmond Nazareth. The Goan company produces the spirits and liqueurs under the brandname DesmondJi.
Prior to his entrepreneurial venture in the alcohol and beverage business, Desmond was invoilved in the development of pioneering softwares in the USA. During his stay there, he had grown a liking for the Margarita. When he moved back to India in 2000, he realised the lack of options for spirit aficionados in the country; especially for Margarita. He then went on to conceptualise Agave India. While personally researching and supervising all aspects of manufacturing spirits and liquers, he found a treasure in agave plants which grow in red and black volcanic soils of the Deccan Plateau.
As on today, Desmond is a proud man having acheived goals of his project - producing high quality and affordable spirits, liqueurs and cocktail blends under Agave India's signature line DesmondJi!
