Indri Single Malt

Indra Single Malt

Whiskey is the drink of choice around the office and we have sampled whiskeys from every corner of the globe, but Indri was our first India. This award-winning single malt has won recognition both at home and abroad. This is a very different tasting experience with hints of pineapple, citrus, and a light sweet spice that finishes very smooth. A good bottle of whiskey is the perfect companion for the Dayboat Travel Flask above.
