Pondicherry might have a lot of history and culture associated with it, like, the French settlement, the Aurobindo Ashram and Auroville, but a lot of people actually go to Pondicherry to explore and taste the French liquors and liqueurs.
And the icing on the cake is the cheaper rate of these bottles when compared to the rest of the Indian country.
Its gets even better when you hear the umpteen choices of exotic drinks that you can taste here.
They range from the Taittinger champagne, exotic and aged French wines straight from the wine cellar, a variety of French liqueurs, brands from the stable of Pernod Ricard, Perrier sparkling water, Carlsberg and other French beers and a whole bunch of other French products that cater to the varied tastes of people.
But, it is not that only French products are available here. Visitors to Pondicherry can also find other global and local alcohol brands here…Absolut, Jack Daniels, Glen Livet and Fiddich, Smirn Off, Kingfisher to name a few.
In my mind, Pondicherry is one awesome place in India to get immersed in the French lifestyle.
