Patiala Peg History

For decades, some people have been arguing for at least a century. Patiala Peg was an Indian measure of fitness for drinking and somewhere down the line it took the right turn and became more than a whiskey measure.

Patiala Peg is an integral part of Punjab’s urban and rural vocabulary and is a measure of whiskey defined by the distance between index and small finger when held parallel to glass.

The magnificence of the drink is often related to the size of Maharaya Patiali. Mharaja were known for their extravagance and kingdom.

There are many theories that revolve around the rule of the principality of the state of Patiala from 1900 until his death in 1938, Maharaja Sir Bhupinder Singh.

Patiali’s tradition was to invite “Wicekroysa Pychy”to invite hospitable involvement in the territory of Maharajas.

I heard another anecdote about how Patial Patial’s dowel looked like at the (external) distance between his forefinger and a small finger.

In the evening before the Pride Viceroys meeting, there was fun pouring a double measurement of whiskey in each dowel, later called “Patiala Peg“.

When Maharaya complained about the great glasses of whiskey given to them. it is said that Maharaja told them:”Yes, in Patiali our pegs are big!

One day Maharaj invited the Irish Viceroy’s Pride team to a friendly tournament of tents.
