The Indian single malts are breaking down barriers and giving Indian whiskies a reputation they have never had before, breaking away from a culture that favours Scotch whiskies primarily. The world’s perception of Indian spirits is evolving along with Indian single malts.
The first triple-barrel single malt from India, Indri-Trini, marked the start of the Indri journey. The brand has taken home more than 14 international honours since its 2021 launch.
Homegrown single malt, Indri’s Diwali Collector’s Edition 2023 won ‘Best in Show Double Gold’ at the renowned Whiskies of the World Awards. This one is a peated Indian single malt created with six-row barley and distilled in traditional copper pot stills made in India. This special expression entices you with a whiff of smoke and awakens your senses to a myriad of flavours such as candied dried fruits, toasted nuts, subtle spices, oak, bittersweet chocolate, and more. Moreover, it has been carefully matured in PX Sherry Casks for a long time in the sub-tropical climate of North India.
Additionally, this collector’s edition will be available in the US, India and in select European countries from November onwards.
