Indri: India's First Triple Cask Single Malt Whisky

Haryana’s Piccadily Distilleries has given birth to the exquisite Indri, India's first triple cask single malt whiskey. Crafted from six-row barley and distilled using traditional copper pot stills, this whiskey captures the very essence of its sub-tropical North Indian origins. With each sip, you will enjoy a remarkably smoky flavour and your taste buds will be treated to a symphony of flavours, including candied dried fruits, toasted nuts, and delicate spices; all of which harmonize with the rich notes of oak and bittersweet chocolate. The homegrown whiskey recently made history by winning the Best in Show, Double Gold at the prestigious Whiskies of the World Awards.
