The Khemani Group is committed to producing the finest spirits for India’s domestic market as well as for export. This commitment is exemplified by its use of the Vogelbusch process, which ensures clean fermentation without unpleasant odours or tastes. This approach is key to the quality of its leading brands, which includes McDowell's Signature Whisky, Royal Challenge Premium Whisky, Bagpiper Whisky and Green Label Whisky to name just a few.
Its adherence to the highest standards is even reflected in the way The Khemani Group’s facilities have been designed. For example, its Daman plant meets: ISO 9001:2008, which covers adherence to stringent international quality norms; ISO 14001:2004, regarding environmental responsibility; and the HACCP food safety management system, which is a risk assessment tool to assess food safety hazards.
To make sure that its flooring reflected these principles, several high-performance resin solutions from Flowcrete India were installed throughout the site. 3,000 m2 of the HACCP International certified, polyurethane floor coating system Flowfresh MF was applied in the demanding production area at a thickness of 4mm. The seamless, impervious nature of this solution means that it can be quickly and easily cleaned while its durability ensures that the impacts, point loading, traffic and chemicals it will inevitably be exposed to in the distillery won’t ruin its finish.
To provide a floor that takes hygiene one step further, Flowfresh MF incorporates the antibacterial additive Polygiene®. This silver-ion based bactericidal agent is able to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria that comes into contact with the floor finish.
350 m2 of the self-smoothing, anti-static epoxy system Flowshield ESD SL was installed in the facility’s electrical panel room. This floor finish is ideal for areas with sensitive electrical equipment, as it avoids electro-static discharges building up in the floor and damaging delicate computer components.
