India consumes more than $20 billion worth of whiskey each year -- more than any other country -- and United Spirits Ltd. (UNSP:IN) is the nation's largest distiller. The company has seen sales double in four years, and Euromonitor International estimates that India's whiskey market will jump 48 percent from 2011 to 2016. The United Kingdom's Diageo PLC (DGE:LN) bought a controlling stake in United Spirits in November.
