Indri-Trini, a single malt from the house of Piccadily Distillery, is the new star that the world is awakening to. Launched in 2022 its inaugural expression has bagged some of the most prestigious awards Globally. Indri has not only got the Indian Single Malts enthusiasts excited but has also been generating a lot of attention in the international arena. Indri backed by a mammoth stock of 40000 Barrels with a distillery churning out 12000 litres of Malt spirit every day is saddled in for the long haul.

Launched as part of the World Drinks Awards, the World Whiskies Awards commend the best whiskies in 16 categories covering style and production methods. Indri – Trini is the Category Winner - No Age Statement Category at the WWA 2022. It also bagged the Best Single Malt coming out of India in 2022, irrespective of age, ABV and finish.

Dom Roskrow, a spirits writer, Editor and consultant specializing in whisky has been a drinks writer since 1991, and a whisky writer since 2001. At the 2022 edition of Dom Roskrow’s New Wizards Awards (The NWAs), Indri – Trini was awarded the Best Asian Whisky of the year award. 

“This was one of the most competitive categories in this year’s Awards, with several gold medal winners competing for the title. This, though, was a revelation and joins a growing band of wonderful Indian whiskies. It is matured in ex-sherry, ex-bourbon and French oak casks so unsurprisingly there’s a lot going on- berry fruits and red peanuts, lemon, grapefruit and tropical notes, all held in place by freshly shaved wood tannins and soft spice," said Dom Roskrow Spirit, writer and one of the most revered authority on Single Malt Globally. 

Another feather in the cap is the Silver with 91 pts at the International Wine and Spirit Competition. Tasted by connoisseurs across the globe such as Ivan Dixon, Dawn Davies MW, Andrea Dionori, Jeremy Stephens and Ludo Ducrocq praised Indri – Trini as a clean, malty nose with oak sweetness and hints of tropical fruits. Tannic, yet delicate mouthfeel revealing prunes, figs and dates giving it an earthy finish.
