New Delhi, India – October 2, 2023 – Indri Whisky Diwali Collector’s Edition 2023, an exceptional made-in-India whisky, has ascended to the pinnacle of the global whisky industry, earning the prestigious title of “Best Whisky Brand in the World” at the prestigious Whiskies of the World competition. In a spectacular triumph, Indri whisky was awarded the coveted “Double Gold Best In Show” distinction, surpassing over 100 diverse whiskies hailing from across the globe.
Indri whisky, a product of Piccadily Distilleries situated in Haryana, has swiftly risen to prominence with its distinctive profile as a peated Indian single malt whisky. Peated whiskies, characterized by their smoky flavors, are achieved by employing peat fires during the malted barley drying process. The intensity of the peat smoke defines the robustness of this characteristic flavor.
Crafted from six-row barley and meticulously distilled in traditional made-in-India copper pot stills, Indri whisky tantalizes the palate with enchanting notes of smoke, candied dried fruits, toasted nuts, subtle spices, oak, and bittersweet chocolate. Enthusiasts of fine spirits can anticipate its availability in the United States and select European nations starting from November 2023. Already cherished across 19 states in India and distributed in 17 other countries, Indri whisky has solidified its global presence.
The triumph of India’s homegrown whisky marks a momentous achievement, especially considering its triumph over an extensive array of whisky brands, including bourbon and British single malts.
