The History of Kingfisher

Kingfisher is India’s No.1 beer and is one of the country’s most heralded exports. However, this triumphant tipple can trace its roots all the way back to 1857 when Castle Breweries first started brewing in the majestic city of Mysore.

Back then, the sight of bullock carts carrying huge barrels of beer was a common one. These carts wheeled their way to customers throughout the region as the refreshing brew became a favourite of all who tasted it. In time, Castle Breweries joined forces with four competitors to form the company now proudly known as United Breweries.

Advertising Spotlight: Real to Reel – MS Dhoni’s #No1Yaari story

 

 

Video Link: https://www.facebook.com/McDowellsNo1/videos/775895522553433/

Bangalore, 19 August, 2016 - McDowell’s No1 Soda celebrates the bonds of true friendship in a unique and soul stirring video with MS Dhoni (Mahi) and his childhood friends (yaars),who have come together for the first time to show the world their #No1Yaari that has transcended through the years.

The trio from Ranchi, have been together through thick and thin, and never resist celebrating their asli yaari at every opportunity they receive. Mahi and his friends have seen each other through all the hardships and successes and have always stood by each other’s side.

The video made by DDB Mudra, Bangalore captures them reminiscing their childhood and early years of friendship through photographs, a fun game of ‘gully cricket’ using tin cartons as the makeshift wickets and cracking jokes amongst each other while playing pranks on others.

Their #No1Yaari was not only about the difficulties but also about the silly moments they share with each other, inside jokes and laughter that radiates through each one of them when they are together.

“A lot has changed over the years but one thing that has remained constant and by my side is my true friendship. Even though we are not able to meet each other very often, but whenever we do, we start from where we last left. Over the years this bond of brotherhood has only become stronger. This video by McDowell’s No1 Soda rebuilds our priceless moments and makes me cherish my yaari even more,” says MS Dhoni.

Arun Pandey, a close friend, confidante and chairman of Rhiti Sports Management, the company that manages MS Dhoni said, "I always believe that true friendship gives you courage and confidence. We are very happy at how this fantastic Yaari video beautifully expresses the nuances of MS's deepest real life friendships. During the initial brainstorming session, my suggestion to include MS's childhood friends in the video (except me) was accepted unanimously. I am sure this video will always have a special place in the hearts of MS's fans and admirers worldwide."

McDowell’s No1 Soda is also running a contest where the lucky winners who comment on the video will get a once in a lifetime chance to meet the MS Dhoni with their No1 Yaars to celebrate their friendship.

Drink Spotlight: Paper Boat golgappe ka pani

 

 

Nothing makes you stop in your tracks in a harried evening like the sight of a Golgappewala (Or Panipuriwala. Or Phuchkawala. Or Patashewala. The list goes on.) The very thought of a Golgappa can make you salivate like you did the first time to had one. You couldn’t believe yourself. You couldn’t believe that they could make food taste like this. But they did. And we bring you the same Golgappe ka Pani. Well, minus the aftermath of the gastrointestinal horrors that you might or might not have faced.

 

 

functional benefits of golgappe ka pani

Other than the functional benefits of salivating (of there are many we’re sure), Golgappe ka Pani has tamarind, lemon juice and a hint of red chillies. The tamarind makes it a awesome immunity booster (what with its anti-oxidant properties and all), while the lemon juice makes it a potent digestive aid. The chilli bits make it a powerhouse of nutrients like Vitamin A and E, copper, iron and potassium. Who knew something this tasty could be this good for you?

Tea Spotlight: Tea Trunk Chilli Chai Black Tea

  • Perfect to kickstart an active morning. Here's a cuppa for the firebrand in you.
  • Taste notes are warm, spicy and bold.
  • Goes well with piping hot samosas.

 

 

About the company

At one point, I owned over 100 rare and exotic teas from China, Japan, Taiwan, Russia, England, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Kenya and so on. I owned this tea treasure but I knew little about these teas. So in 2011, my passion for tea took me to a professional tea school in Sri Lanka, where I studied under the guidance of  Japanese tea master, Nao Kumekawa. During my study, I visited numerous tea gardens, tasted 100 cups of tea a day, and profiled over 2000 varieties of tea.

I left Tea School inspired and brimming with stories about tea, and decided to make it my mission to demystify tea-speak. Many tea tastings and workshops followed. The more stories I told, the more I heard. I smiled extra bright when chai-lovers walked over to say that they had never had tea this way. And I wanted more and more people to discover and enjoy good-quality tea. Thus was born Tea Trunk, the name inspired from my father’s vintage trunk and a tribute to where my love of tea began.

Today my trunk holds gourmet tea blends crafted by me. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Take your pick, and experience tea like it should be.

Drink Spotlight: Paper Boat Anar

 

 

anar

If you asked scientists to invent a way of packing ambrosia into delicious pearl-sized pouches*, they’d look at you quizzically and ask, "Have you not met Anar?"
(*We’d advise you ask scientists to invent other, umm, fruitful things. Like something that postpones Mondays. And submissions. And submissions on Mondays.)
Yes. Pomegranate. Loved by all. Misspelled by all. Precious rubies of respite on a hot day. Powerhouse of nutrients. Ma’s best friend. And your white shirts’ worst enemy. Originally from Iran, this princely fruit descended the Silk Route to our short break’s tiffin dabbas. And today, its nectar has been painstakingly collected and presented to you without fuss, frills, pollutants or preservatives.
It would be disservice to call it a mere drink. Anar, is elixir.

 

 

functional benefits of anar

Anar, we’ll have you know, is quite the old hat. So old, that its first sightings have been traced to the Bronze Age. Maybe that’s why it’s so good at beating aging. Packed with polyphenols, Anar has such commendable antioxidant properties that it probably lectured green tea on the matter. And speaking of beating – Anar is good for the heart, its fiber is kind to the weighing scale, and its abundant Vitamin C is great for immunity.
If Ma could wish for a happy-health-elf to follow you around, it would be Anar.
