Paul John - a Proper Indian Whisky

John distilleries was established in India in 1996 by Paul P John, his personal passion for single malts led him to create his own and within ten years he had already started shipping overseas. After intense research he was able to create premium single malts using native ingredients, Goa became his malt plant and after much experimenting he was able to create some of the finest single malts for the world to enjoy. Once Paul’s whisky was launched internationally they were instantly recognised and awarded acclaimed international awards.

The plant in Goa turned out to be the perfect location, the age old culture, glorious beaches and kind hospitality all of this give Goa an extraordinary enrichment in the air. The many characteristics of Goa are captured in the single malt whisky. Moreover, the tropical climate and humidity truly helps mature the whiskies faster, giving them their own, signature character.

The copper pot stills were made in India and have longer necks to create fruity flavours, double distillation in these pot-stills prolong intimate contact with the copper and this renders a distinct, rich and full-bodied flavour to the new-make spirit Paul John has a single set of pot stills.

The Paul John single malts were launched in the UK in 2012 and with approval of single malt experts it quickly became one of the most highly acclaimed single malts, and in some cases even higher then single malt scotch. Currently Paul John single malts are available in 38 countries.

Paul John create two different whiskies, Peated and non peated, however they have yet to discover peat in India so they get it shipped directly from Scotland. Other than that everything else is made in India which is why they can claim to be a proper Indian whisky.
