Bhutan is the only nation in the world that measures its progress in terms of Gross National Happiness (GNH), unlike other countries, which measure progress by Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This distinction is uniquely characteristic of the small, landlocked country, tucked away in the Eastern Himalayas, south of the Tibetan Autonomous Region and bordered by India on the East, South and West. Woven into the fabric of Bhutan’s governmental policies and everyday way of life is a belief in the need for harmony between the land and its people, between tradition and development, between old ways and new.
The Kingdom of Bhutan is known for its peaceful, harmonious way of life. So it’s no surprise that these qualities — balance, beauty — are equally present in the nation’s preeminent whisky. Blended and bottled by hand in the foothills of the Himalayas, K5 Himalayan Whisky is a special blend created in honor of the coronation of the 5th King of Bhutan’s ascension to the throne. Distinguished and dynamic — it lives up to its namesake.
K5 Himalayan Whisky starts with 100% organic triple-distilled grain spirit and natural Himalayan mountain spring waters from Bhutan. It ends with a special brand of 8- and 12-year old malt whisky from Scotland, bringing together the best of east and west. The result is a blended whisky that is smooth and supremely approachable. Versatile, with notes of sweetness, spice and peat, K5 is delicious in any form or fashion — neat, on the rocks or in a favorite cocktail.
K5 is the first and only Himalayan whisky available in the U.S. — an exclusive opportunity to experience a masterful malt blend from one of the farthest corners of the world.
