Varchas Bourbon 2
Made in the USA
Varchas Bourbon 9

Varchas founded and led his software company for decades. But he always wanted to pursue his passion of making great tasting, premium American whiskey and taking it around the world for people to experience American heritage.

Varchas comes from the historic city of Mysore in South India. The success of South India came from many wars won by the Kings of Mysore. His own success as an immigrant came from amazing opportunities found in coming to America and fighting his own wars in business, so he wanted to create something that would encompass these stories and his life.

The stories come together through the intriguing and sexy packaging. Starting with the unique logo, the double headed eagle, a winning symbol of the Mysore Kingdom with a collectible metallic American Eagle stopper, symbolizing the success in America.

The Varchas brand will continue to release a series of aged bourbon and rye with a variety of finishes that will make our brand unique.

Shankar Distillers, LLC is a certified Minority Owned Business.
