The NDTV Good Times show is a first for TV and Rahul will present the three-part series.
On Wednesday, a preview of the show was released, which promised to give insight into the art of whisky making.
"I went to Scotland as a whiskey novice, returned as a whisky (as it is spelt in Scotland) enthusiast. I had heard that there was a much deeper culture and tradition that went into the making of whisky, so it was educational. I really appreciated the art and craft that went into it," Rahul told IANS.
The actor will be hosting the show from the home of Glendiffich Single Malt in Dufftown, Scotland, and will meet the master blender, Brian Kinsman.
The three episodes will reflect the brand philosophy of William Grant and Sons, with a focus on Glenfiddich and their maverick approach to whisky making.
The idea behind the show is to familiarize Indian audiences with the fine nuances of single malt whisky.
"The series is about the story of the mavericks of Dufftown and William Grant and Sons that brought single malt to the world. It is set in the breath-taking landscape of Scotland and brought to life on the screen by the charming Rahul Khanna," said Arati Singh, Channel Head, NDTV Good Times.
