UK – Indri Whisky, produced by Piccadily, India’s largest independent malt spirits producer, is set to relaunch in the UK market through a new partnership with the renowned spirits distributor Mangrove Global. 

Indri Whisky, originally launched in India in 2021 and internationally in August 2022, had a limited initial release in the UK through Whyte & Mackay.  

The new distribution agreement will now bring Indri’s celebrated single malts, Dru and Trini, and limited volumes of the Diwali edition to UK consumers. 

Indri’s flagship expression, Trini, is a unique blend that combines the influences of three different ex-casks: bourbon, French wine, and PX sherry.  

This careful blending allows each cask to contribute its distinct characteristics, resulting in a whisky with a fruity, sweet, and nutty flavor profile.  

On the other hand, Dru is a cask-strength expression matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, offering a complex and prolonged mixed-fruit finish. 

Indri’s limited edition Diwali release, introduced in 2023, is crafted from peated six-row barley and matured in PX Sherry Casks. This edition earned a double gold award at the Whiskies of the World Awards the same year, further cementing Indri’s reputation for quality. 

Managing Director of Mangrove Global, Nick Gillet expressed his excitement about the partnership. “The beauty of world whisky is the story that each spirit can tell as the authentic flavors of each terroir shine through.  

These distinct expressions from Indri each offer something different to the drinker, but all will help to transport world whisky lovers to this unique part of the world,” he said. 

Mangrove Global, founded in 2006 by John Coe and Nick Gillett and recently acquired by GBH in Martinique, is an established name in whisky distribution. Its extensive portfolio includes notable brands such as Israeli Milk & Honey, Stauning from Denmark, and Red Bank Canadian whisky, launched last month in the UK.
