The story behind Indri whisky, the Indian single malt that won the global award

In a historic win, Indri Diwali Collector’s Edition 2023, a peated Indian single malt whisky, has been awarded the coveted “Best in Show, Double Gold” title at the 2023 Whiskies of the World Awards. This is the first time an Indian whisky has won the top prize at this prestigious competition, one of the world’s largest whisky-tasting competitions.

Indri Diwali Collector’s Edition 2023 is a unique whisky made with six-row barley and matured in PX sherry casks in North India’s subtropical climate. This gives the whisky a complex flavor profile with notes of smoke, candied dried fruits, toasted nuts, subtle spices, oak, and bittersweet chocolate.

The award is a testament to the quality of Indian whiskies and the growing popularity of Indian single malts across the globe. It is also a major boost for the Indian whisky industry, which is already one of the largest in the world.

Why is Indri whisky special?

Indri whisky is the first Indian whisky to win this renowned award. It is also one of the few triple-cask whiskies in the world, which means it is aged in three different types of barrels: American oak, French oak, and Oloroso sherry casks. This gives it a complex and rich flavor profile that appeals to connoisseurs and novices alike. Indri whisky also has a unique story behind its name: it is inspired by the Indri, a rare and endangered lemur native to Madagascar, which symbolizes conservation and sustainability.

Indri whisky is a product of Piccadily Distilleries in Haryana. It is a peated Indian single malt whisky. Peated whiskies refer to whiskies with a smoky flavor, which is induced using peat fires to dry malted barley. The peat smoke’s length and intensity decide this flavor’s strength. Indri whisky is crafted with six-row barley and distilled in traditional made-in-India copper pot stills. Indri whisky offers notes of smoke, candied dried fruits, toasted nuts, subtle spices, oak, and bittersweet chocolate.
