The tasting was followed by an exciting and enjoyable night with exquisite drams, exuberant experiences, and a brilliant audience! After the first dram of the night, the award-winning Indri Trini, the cohort sampled some single casks from the distillery and were pleasantly surprised by what the distillery yet has to offer.

Indri single malt is distilled in Indri, Haryana, near the Himalayan foothills, in the catchment area of River Yamuna.

This remarkable single malt is made from indigenous six-row barley grown for hundreds of years in Rajasthan. Matured with care since 2012, Indri–Trini is also the first Indian whisky to be produced in three different wooden barrels: ex-bourbon, ex-wine, and PX sherry casks.

Indri – Trini bottled at 46% ABV, is a Non-Chill Filtered whisky.

NOSE: Hints of black tea, caramelized pineapple with a whiff of oak from the barrel comes forward, followed by vanilla and honey from the bourbon oak and traces of spiced tannins from the European oak, finally topped up with vinous raisin and sweet sherry notes. Gentle and mellow on the nose.
TASTE: Elegant richness, smooth and warm on the sides of the mouth. Gentle spice and wo o d c h a r a c t e r s c ome
through, followed by nutty flavours and hints of burnt pineapple, citrus and raisins.
FINISH : A subtle and balanced finish where each flavour compliments one another without dominating. A smooth and long aftertaste with sweet fruity flavours coming up from the warmth of the throat, lingering long after
About Piccadily Distilleries: Part of the Piccadily distillery group 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 to 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 litres per day and making it a 4 million litres distillery per annum.

The distillery is rapidly expanding its warehousing capacity to hold another 30,000 barrels.A new visitor centre is also under construction and will be open for visitors by the end of the year. The extreme temperature of the Northern plains helps our malt spirit mature faster inside the barrels, naturally.

This also means the angels happily take away their share, leaving behind sweet tropical flavours and rich natural colour.

The distillery proudly uses no Fossil fuels to generate its power needs.
