India’s prideful domestically produced single malt brand from the Piccadily Distilleries, Indri, has once more secured a place among the finest whiskies globally.

Indri-Trini, India’s inaugural triple cask single malt, has clinched the title of Best ‘New World’ Whiskey, accorded by the renowned US-based alco-bev platform, VinePair. This recognition further solidifies Indri’s standing as one of India’s swiftest expanding single malt brands, both domestically and internationally. This triumph follows the previous accolade bestowed upon Indri Diwali Collector’s Edition, hailed as the Best Whisky in the World by clinching the “Best in Show, Double Gold’’ award at the esteemed Whiskies of the World Awards 2023. Since its inception in 2021, Indri-Trini has amassed over 14 international accolades, propelling India to unprecedented peaks in the realm of premium single malts.

Drawing from consumer-oriented tastings of numerous whiskies worldwide over the past year, VinePair handpicks one exceptional bottle from each whiskey category. Assessing criteria such as flavor, balance, depth, and complexity relative to their respective price points, the platform unveils a roster of the World’s Best Whiskeys at the onset of each year. This year, the lineup features Indri Trini as the Best ‘New World’ Whiskey alongside Wilderness Trail Small Batch High Rye Bourbon as the Best Bourbon; Jack Daniel’s Bonded Rye as the Best Rye; Glenglassaugh Sandend Highland Single Malt Whisky as the Best Single Malt Scotch; Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey as the Best Irish Whiskey; Mars ‘The Lucky Cat May & Luna’ as the Best Japanese; and Alberta Premium Cask Strength Rye as The Best Canadian Whisky, among others. Notably, Indri stands as the sole Indian brand on this esteemed list.

Expressing his sentiments on this feat, Siddhartha Sharma, the Founder of Piccadily Distilleries, remarked, “The Indian whisky industry is witnessing a glorious emergence, and Indri takes pride in leading this transition. The surge in the popularity of Indian single malts and Indri among consumers and critics worldwide is evident on multiple fronts. The recent recognition by VinePair is yet another feather in our cap. Being acknowledged as the sole Indian single malt whisky is gratifying and bolsters our commitment to crafting high-quality whisky, which has become the preferred choice for consumers.”

Indri-Trini distinguishes itself as India’s inaugural triple-cask single malt whisky, distilled in a facility located in the village of Indri, Haryana. The appellation “Trini” pays homage to the trio of three coveted casks in which the whisky undergoes maturation—ex-Bourbon, ex-French wine, and PX Sherry. The triple cask aging imparts a distinct flavor profile, unveiling delightful hints of caramelized pineapple, vanilla, black tea, raisins, honey, and a lingering finish of sweet fruity nuances. Meticulously crafted utilizing the finest 6-row Indian barley sourced from Rajasthan, it pays homage to the region’s longstanding traditions.

Indri-Trini is readily available across 19 states in India and 18 countries internationally.
