Distillery Notes:

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

Tasting Notes:

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

93 Points - Whisky Advocate
"Matured in bourbon barrels in a climate that leads to significant evaporation, the nose has deep vanilla, dark chocolate, orange zest, toasted oak, roasted hazelnut, heather honey, and subtle nutmeg spice. It takes water well and reveals its layers, but neat, there’s a fathomless pool of dark chocolate, supported by orange, vanilla pod, praline, clove, warm honey, and Brazil nut. This one is a real late-night treat."

93 Points, Excellent/Highly Recommended - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2023

"There are a lot of bruleed notes evoked here of flamed orange peel, kindling wood, poached pear, and fire-roasted marshmallow. Big and bold on the palate, showing stewed sweet oranges, mulled golden pears, and ginger-spiced molasses, the finish is spice-laden and well-integrated."

90 Points - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2023

"A lovely, balanced whiskey bursting with an abundance of aroma and flavour. A bounty of sweet spice, dried fruit and dark chocolate offers a delightfully smooth, lingering finish. Truly gorgeous."
