I IS Nepal’s finest Rum since 1959 and can be proudly proclaimed as the “Taste of Himalayas”. The name Khukri is synonymous to the traditional knife of Nepal from ancient times. More than it begin a reserved and effective weapon, it is also the all-purpose knife of the hill people. The Khukri is a versatile working tool and is an indispensable possession of every household.
