Whiskies of the World Awards
Whiskies of the World Awards follows a rigorous blind tasting over several rounds across categories.
The Indian whisky beat hundreds of international brands that include American single malts, Scotch whiskies, Bourbons, Canadian whiskies, Australian single malts, and British single malts.
Growth of Indian single malts
The brand commenced its journey in 2021 with the introduction of Indri-Trini, India’s first triple-barrel single malt.
Siddhartha Sharma, Founder, Piccadily Distilleries, said in an official statement, “It is an exciting time for India, and Indian whiskies are not far behind as we are playing our part in the India story.
Additionally the manufacturers say the win is a testament to the quality and the growing popularity of Indian single malts across the globe.
Making of the Indri Whisky
The whisky undergoes a significant maturation period in PX sherry casks in North India’s subtropical climate.
It has enticing notes of smoke, candied dried fruits, toasted nuts, delicate spices, oak, and bittersweet chocolate.
Indri-Trini is already available across 19 states in India and 17 other countries and will be available in the US, and in select European countries from November.
