The product launched in 2015 is India’s first brandy made of 100% premium grape spirit. “We are thrilled to receive this prestigious recognition,” said Rajeev Samant, CEO, Sula Vineyards. “This acknowledgement further validates JANUS’ groundbreaking project to create India’s first 100% premium grape brandy. Winners are determined in part by experts in the industry. We are pleased that they have recognized our efforts to lead the industry in terms of innovation and quality.”

Deriving its name from the ancient Roman deity with two faces, JANUS embodies the exceptional French Cognac making heritage and the expertise of Sula in selecting the best Indian grapes. JANUS is made from carefully selected grapes from the best Indian vineyards which are then double distilled in small batches using traditional French alembic pot stills, to produce a liquor of exceptional smoothness and character

JANUS is currently available in 750 ml and 180 ml. A 750 ml in Karnataka is priced at 1900 INR, Andhra Pradesh INR 2390, Telangana INR 2265. In Goa, Pondicherry, Daman, and Silvassa JANUS is retailed at INR 1500 and available across leading outlets. It is manufactured by Artisan Spirits, 100% subsidiary of Sula Vineyards.
