Bollywood actor Anupam Kher too shared how he started drinking for the first time and that too with Old Monk.
जिन जिन चीज़ों ने अपने बड़े होने का अहसास कराया उनमें से एक थी #OldMonk। हम आठ दोस्तों ने मिलकर सोलन से एक छोटी बोतल ली और दोपहर के वक़्त पहाड़ के पीछे जाकर एक एक पेग पिया। बचपन से जवानी का वो क़दम आज भी याद है। धन्यवाद #KapilMohan जी उन यादों के लिए।आप याद रहोगे।चीयर्स।🥂🍷— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) January 9, 2018
Old Monk was launched in 1954 and it was the largest selling dark rum in the world. Not only this, Old Monk was also the biggest Indian made foreign liquor brand as well and that too for quite a long time.
