Raise Your Spirits!

To celebrate Women’s Day this year – but every day is Women’s Day for us – we’ve curated a list of the most coveted spirits you can give to the strongest, and most independent lady in your life, someone who covets her single malts, champagne, cognac, and vodka equally!

Belvedere Pure vodka

The Pure Taste of Nature

This is for the woman who is a purist. This Polish vodka has been sustainable before the term became one of the most cult words of the 2020s. Made solely from organic, pesticide-free Polska rye, purified water, and a distillation process by fire, Belvedere vodka contains zero additives, is certified kosher, and is made as per the legal regulations of Polska vodka – that nothing extra may be added. Produced in one of the world’s longest operating Polish distilleries that has been making vodka since 1910, Belvedere’s Master Rye Distillers draw from a 600-year polish vodka-making history to artfully craft Polska rye into an extraordinary vodka of distinct taste and character. In fact, Poland has been the first country to give an appellation to vodka (much the same way France does to its wines, eg, Burgundy, Champagne), which literally means that nothing extra may be added to the vodka, ensuring its smooth taste. With its distinctive frosted glass bottle, and the beautiful Presidential Palace in Warsaw on the label, its vanilla and white pepper flavour is clean, creamy, and perfect drunk on the rocks or mixed in your favourite cocktail. Price: Delhi: INR 3,735; Mumbai: INR 6,176; Bangalore: INR 6,197.

Lifestyle Insider is a kind of junction point, connecting people with diverse interests that touch on the more luxurious aspects of lifestyle – fashion, design, travel, food and spirits, art, watches and jewellery, cars, yachts, and aviation, and technology. People today don’t fit into boxes and categories. In our individual ways, we are interested in diverse themes, products, and the challenges that face our world today. You will judge how well this effort of mine caters to your passions and proclivities.

Lifestyle Insider is a showcase of all that is beautiful and luxe. Behind every creation, is a designer, chef, entrepreneur, or a design maison. I have delved into my own appreciation for objetsde luxe that I have admired over the years – be it a love of fashion from the world’s top Parisian and Italian fashion maisons and their ’90s muses, or the care that goes into sari and Indian textile collections in my own family. Growing up on four continents, as the daughter of a former Indian Ambassador, I’ve seen a remarkable array of historic places and met a myriad people. My aim is to bring my world view into this website, a curation of what I find particularly stunning, unique, and newsworthy.

It’s an exciting time for brands all over the world. With change comes opportunity. With the global ‘reset’ and uncertainty on many fronts, there is a chance to write a new script. Let’s be those pioneers.

A bit about me:
A luxury and fashion journalist with 25 years of experience in publishing and magazine journalism, I have edited some of India’s top fashion and luxury magazines. I got my BA in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and went on to receive my Master’s in English and French from the University of Strasbourg, France. I have also studied German and Film. I live in Gurugram, India, and look forward to once again exploring our world with a new-found freedom.
