THE REAL MEASURE OF A MAN There is an age-old query that has always been hanging fire – what makes a man a real man? It is not affected machismo, rather it is a never-say-die spirit, the will to succeed, a sense of compassion and a winning attitude. Here are the people who exemplify the spirit of a man in all its fullness.

LEONARDO DI CAPRIO

MICHAEL SCHUMACHER The hallmark of sporting excellence, Michael Schumacher is a man who has performed the remarkable feat of transcending his chosen sporting idiom to become as big as the sport itself. Officially declared by Formula One racing as the greatest driver the sport has ever seen, Schumacher is a legend who will always continue to dominate Formula One racing.

THE MARK OF A MAN The sheer will to succeed.

Think of Leonardo as the freshly scrubbed romantic Jack Dawson in the Titanic and then picture him as the gritty state trooper Billy Costigan Jr who infiltrates a gang of criminals who stop at nothing, even murder. There is a world of a difference between the two roles and that is why Leonardo Di Caprio will always be celebrated as an outstanding actor – he is convincing in everything he does.

THE MARK OF A MAN The remarkable conviction in his screen avatars

CRISTIANO RONALDO He is right now the most expensive player in football history. The distinctions he has earned in 2008 alone make him an outstanding athlete. The Player Of The Tournament at UEFA and the FIFA Player Of The Year, this man is unstoppable. Not too many people know that at age 15 Ronaldo was diagnosed with a racing heart, a condition which could have prevented him from playing football altogether.

THE MARK OF A MAN The power to overcome all obstacles

MATT DAMON

HUGH JACKMAN

It is significant that while Matt Damon and Ben Affleck started their movie career together with the award-winning screenplay for the movie Good Will Hunting, Damon has gone on to become one of the all-time top thirty five grossing actors in Hollywood. The real measure of the man however, lies in the fact that he uses his success to make the world a better place by his involvement in various worldwide charities.

Voted The Sexiest Man Alive in not one but two back-toback polls last year Hugh Jackman is a performer who knows no limits. A singer and a dancer on stage, Jackman brings with him a brooding persona on-screen that has served him well in his roles in the X-Men and Van Helsing. And just to prove that he can improvise brilliantly in live situations, Jackman hosted the 81st Academy awards this year with resounding success.

THE MARK OF A MAN

THE MARK OF A MAN

A sense of compassion for fellow humans.

The staggering diversity of his talent.

RAFAEL NADAL When he started out, everyone thought Rafael Nadal would do well only on clay courts and they subsequently dubbed him The King Of Clay. The tennis player obviously didn’t like being dubbed a onedimensional entity and that is why he is the first player to simultaneously win grand slam titles on grass, clay and hard court. Anyone would have been disappointed being stuck to the #2 spot for a record 160 weeks but not Nadal, he persevered and reached the top.

THE MARK OF A MAN A never-say-die spirit.

TOP OF THE

WORLD

There was a time when we craved everything that was imported because that coveted tag equalled world-class quality. Those days have gone the way of the dinosaurs and the dodo bird. They are extinct. We no longer just believe we are the best. We actually are right up there with the best of the very best. Here are four great examples of the fact.

Signature

Rare Aged Whiskey

Like an unstoppable force, Signature Rare Aged Whisky has flattened everything in its path to become one of the fastest growing brands in the country. Boasting of a world-class blend that contains high quality Scotch in every drop, Signature walked away with a Grand Gold at the Monde Selection in 2006 and Silver at BTI, Chicago (2009) and International Spirits Challenge, UK (2008). This is after it took home the Silver and the Best In Class trophies at the International Wine And Spirits competition in 2005. Now, if there are any doubts about the superb quality of this brand, isn’t it time the world took a reality check?

Royal Challenge

Finest Premium Whiskey

One of the toughest things in the world is to create a legacy that endures but Royal Challenge has done it without breaking into a sweat. A name synonymous with the finest that Indian whisky has to offer, Royal Challenge boasts of a twenty-five year old heritage. An indisputable frontrunner, this embodiment of great taste is a market leader with a 31% market share and remains one of India’s largest selling premium whiskies. Does anyone have it in them to compete with it? That’s the Royal Challenge.

Antiquity Rare

Antiquity Blue

Antiquity Rare’s beautiful antique gold colour is the first hint of this much-loved premium whisky’s rich and impeccable lineage. This unmatched whisky is skillfully blended with choicest malts, matured in imported white oak casks, and rare Scotch. It is the result of decades of diligent efforts by our team of distillers and blenders.

Antiquity Blue is the true blue of whiskies. And probably India’s best. It is made from the finest grain and choicest malts, painstakingly distilled in copper pot stills, matured and mellowed in imported white oak casks and blended with super premium Scotch.

Premium Whiskey

Little wonder, it has been lavished with admiration and rewards of the highest kind - Gold Medal at Monde Selection, Bruxelles, 2006, Silver at International Wine and Spirits Competition in 2007, and Superior Taste Award, ITQI Brussels in 2006. Its smooth taste, soft velvety feel and delicate aroma combine to give you a whisky drinking experience that’s truly a class apart.

Ultra Premium Whiskey

Its subtle nuances come from the choicest components of the blend, giving it a full smooth flavour and a bouquet that proclaims its royal pedigree. A string of international awards - Gold at the World Beverage Competition, USA, 2007, Silver at Monde Selection 2009 & BTI Chicago 2009, and the Superior Taste Award, ITQI Brussels in 2006 – stand testimony to its distinctive taste, smoothness and mouthfeel.
