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.

Indri DRU

Indri DRU, bottled at 57.2% ABV, is a cask strength expression from Indri, where selected ex-Bourbon Barrels are handpicked and married together by our master blender to offer you an experience that will awaken your senses.

In Sanskrit, ‘Dru’ means wood, tree, or a vessel made of wood. In ancient Indian mythology, Dru was a vessel in which ‘soma’ (a drink) was collected and offered to the Gods.

Indri Single Malt Indian whisky is distilled and matured in the subtropical climate of Northern India. Angels here are indeed greedy as we lose 10 to 12% every year due to evaporation. Yet, this accelerated evaporation helps mature the whisky much faster and gives it a totally different dimension.

Non Chill-Filtered & No Color Added

Nose: Whiff of mixed fruit basket, vanilla, subtle citrus hints, gentle spice, chocolate, and honey tones expressing a robust nose profile.

Palate: Sweet. fruit forward taste with soft spice followed immediately with sweet vanilla and a hint of chocolate; with wood lactones, and citrus appearing from the back of the palate.

Finish: Full bodied and complex with a fairly long mixed fruit finish making it a salivating dram.
