India’s own Indri Single Malt Whisky has set a blazing trail in the global spirits market, achieving a remarkable milestone by surpassing 100,000 cases in sales within just two years of its launch. This outstanding feat has propelled Indri-Trini to become the fastest-growing single malt whisky worldwide, a title previously unclaimed by any other whisky brand, whether from Scotland, Japan, or Taiwan.

Since its introduction in November 2021, Indri has experienced an unprecedented growth surge of 599%, rewriting industry benchmarks and capturing a substantial 30% market share in India. Piccadily Distilleries, the mastermind behind Indri, envisions joining the ranks of the top 5 best-selling single malt whisky brands globally, a testament to their ambitious expansion strategies.


Praveen Malviya, CEO of Piccadily Distilleries, describes Indri not merely as a brand but as a symbol of Indian excellence, elevating the status of Indian spirits to unparalleled heights. Indri's accolades, including the prestigious "Best Whisky In The World" title at the Whiskies of the World Awards, underscore its journey from a small sugar mill in Indri, Haryana, to international acclaim.

Indri’s success mirrors a broader trend in the Indian alcoholic beverages industry, where premium spirits are gaining traction. Indian single malt whiskies have outpaced their Scottish counterparts, with a remarkable 144% surge in sales during 2021-22. The Confederation of Indian Alcoholic Beverage Companies (CIABC) estimates that Indian single malts commanded a staggering 53% share of total sales in 2023, signaling a shift in consumer preferences towards domestic offerings.


As Indri continues to redefine the standards of Indian single malt whisky, Piccadily Distilleries remains committed to innovation, exploration, and delivering exceptional experiences to whisky enthusiasts worldwide.

With the rise of Indian single malts like Indri, the global spirits landscape is witnessing a blend of authenticity and innovation, honoring indigenous craftsmanship while embracing international recognition. As consumers seek unique flavors and experiences, the trend towards premiumization is expected to dominate the sector, driving further growth and exploration within the whisky industry.
