The Indri distillery has been crafting award-winning single malt whisky since 2012. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayan mountains near the Yamuna basin, the distillery is named for the small city in Haryana, India, where it’s located. Indri, or Indriya in Sanskrit, also refers to the five senses—smell, taste, touch, sight, and sound—a fitting and appropriate name for a distillery producing some of the most expressive single malt whisky today.
The Indri distillery is operated under Master Distiller Graeme Hamilton Bowie, a 38-year Scotch whisky veteran, and Master Blender Surrinder Kumar. Kumar, the most prolific figure in Indian whisky, has been crafting the most prestigious Indian single malt for nearly two decades.
Indri begins with the finest hand-harvested, indigenous, 6-row barley, locally sourced and sustainably grown by family farmers in Bundi, Rajasthan, who have cultivated barley for four generations. The distillery is home to 6 traditional copper pot stills designed and manufactured in India and operates its own on-site cooperage to assemble, toast, char, and repair its barrels. The extreme temperature of the region aids in the rapid aging of barreled spirits, resulting in single malts that show a maturity far beyond their age.

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.
