The then ruler of Sangli invited the late Dr.S.R.Shirgaokar to start a sugar plant. Dr.S.R. Shirgaokar deputed his nephew Shri.V.S.Shirgaokar to purchase a sugar plant from Moholi Sugar Factory in Sitapur District in Bihar and install it at Ugar Khurd. The 500 TCD plant was purchased, installed and the first crushing season was started on the 21st of April, 1942. The crushing capacity of the company underwent further expansion(10,000 TCD). Presently, the crushing capacity of the organization is 15,000 TCD.(Ugar & Unit-Jewargi). The company diversified its activities and started its own distillery in the year 1962-63 and then added the liquor section in the year 1967-68. The company is producing brands like Old Castle Whisky, Gokak Falls Whisky, US Rum, Doctors Brandy, Gagarin Vodka and the company's brands are well accepted by the market.
The company has setup a new distillery plant for producing 45,000 litres rectified spirit including 10,000 litres ENA per day during the year 1994-95. This is in addition to the existing 30,000 litres per day old distillery plant. The company further diversified and set up a first-in-its-kind-in India Co-Generation Power Plant of 44 MW. This was based on the principle of bagasse based renewable sources of energy used as fuel. Out of which 28 MW are being exported to the grid and the rest of the 16 MW are used for captive consumption.
