Neighbourhood Lifestyle Desk/Avi Arya: Is Touted as the world’s largest whisky bar, with a collection of 2,500 types of whiskies, it is now a tourist draw in the quaint little Swiss town of St Moritz. Is now 22 years old and has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for its collection that ranges from blended whisky and Scotch to bourbon and single malts. And, yes, there’s Indian whisky, too.
The idea was neat, so to speak. A young man from Switzerland was suffering from a tummy bug in Mumbai when an Indian friend told him how to deal with it. The world’s largest whisky bar has to thank the friend for the remedy he suggested. It was this bit of advice quite possibly proposed as a little joke that therefore set the idea rolling.
