The Spirit of Five Senses
Indri, named after the place where the distillery is located, is a small village situated in the catchment area of River Yamuna, nestled in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas. Indri or Indriya in Sanskrit also refers to the 5 senses: Smell-Taste-Touch-Sight-Sound.
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 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.
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.
