Piccadilly is the largest independent manufacturer and seller of malt spirits in India.

Our distillery has six Scottish-style copper pot stills–three are wash stills (25,000 l.) and three are spirit stills (15,000 l.). Together they produce 12,000 liters of malt spirit daily and four million liters annually.

The height of the wash still is 9.7 meters and spirits stills is 5.7 metres. The wash stills resemble a lamp shape while the spirit stills have an onion head in the cone area to increase the reflux, resulting in a light, floral and fruity spirit.

Our American-imported oak barrels are assembled, cared for, toasted, charred and repaired by our expert in-house coopers.

At Picadilly, we embrace a 70/30 philosophy: 70% of the flavor of our spirits comes from our high-quality and attentive labor in the warehouse, that begins with choosing the best barley for our product, while 30% comes from a je ne sais quoi quality, the indescribable mix of the elements and a whole lot of love.

THE ART OF BLENDING

Blending is a delicate art. The master blender begins by nosing samples in tulip-shaped glasses and then carefully selects from a wide palate of ex bourbon first fill, virgin oak, ex wine and sherry casks. Different malts, both peated and non peated, are considered in combination and are then left to proverbially marry in casks. Once their union is smooth and natural, the process of bottling begins. This is the final step in the process of making this whiskey, which is one of the best single malt blends in India.
