Indri makes its debut in the US in September of 2022 with the release of its core expression, Indri Trini Single Malt. This multi award-winning Single Malt recently brought home two Gold medals from the World Whisky Awards (Best Indian Single Malt and Category Winner), Asian Whisky of the Year from Dom Roskrow’s New Wizards, a Gold at the International Spirits Challenge, a Gold from the 2022 Global World Whisky Masters, and most recently a Platinum award and 96 points from the Las Vegas Global Spirit Awards..
Bottled at 46% ABV, Trini – The Three Wood, is curated by the master craftsmen at Piccadily. This remarkable Single Malt is made from indigenous six-row barley grown for hundreds of years in Rajasthan, matured in selected barrels, and blended carefully to bring out the individual contribution of each wood (first fill Bourbon, ex-French wine and PX Sherry Casks) without overshadowing the original whisky profile. It is non chill filtered with no color added.
Smell – Gentle and mellow. Black tea; caramelized pineapple; oak; vanilla; honey; raisin; sweet cherry.
Taste – Smooth and warm. Gently spiced; woody; nutty; a slowly deepening, full-mouthed feel.
Touch – On the tongue. Velvety; complex; long-lasting warm
Sight – Earthy and subtle, no added color. Amber; golden; sunset.
Sound – A splash; a clink; a pour. Enjoy Indri neat, on the rocks, or with a splash of water.

Part of the Piccadily distillery group which has three distilleries in the Northern part of India: Indri, Patiala and Bawal.
The malt distillery at Indri, located off the famous Grand Trunk Road (which linked Central Asia to the Indian Subcontinent for almost 2500 years) was set up in 2012. The distillery is also home for 6 traditional copper pot stills (designed and made in India) and 40,000 barrels.
Today, it is India’s largest independent malt manufacturer and seller of malt spirits, with a production capacity of 12000 liters daily and up to 4 million liters yearly. The distillery is rapidly expanding its warehousing capacity to hold another 30,000 barrels. A new visitor center is also under construction and will be open for visitors by the end of the year.
The extreme temperature of the Northern plains helps the malt spirit mature faster inside the barrels, naturally. This also means the angels happily take away their share and leave behind sweet tropical flavors and rich natural color.
The distillery is proud to generate power for its consumption without using any fossil fuels.
