Calm, serene, yet incredibly full of life, Goa is seeped in history. Some believe that the fabled Silk Route wound its way to its coast. And the lure of spices brought the Arabs, the Portuguese and other travelers to its shores. Goa welcomed them all with open arms, offering them the adventure and riches they sought.

With its rich colonial heritage, white sand beaches, gurgling backwaters, pleasantly charming people and an atmosphere of general cheer, Goa is not a place to be rushed. Much like a good Single Malt.

That’s why we chose this beautiful tropical coast to craft our Single Malts. The many personalities of Goa are captured in each of our creations. The warm temperatures truly help mature the whiskies faster. Giving them their own, signature flavour.

Paul John Single Malts are the master creations of John Distilleries Ltd (JDL). Established in 1992, the company is driven by the vision of its Chairman,
Mr Paul P. John. His passion for creating liquor brands of international repute led him to persevere, innovate and break the mould.

JDL has a diverse portfolio, including its flagship brand Original Choice Whisky, which sells over 10 million cases a year. The company also has many a reputed brand of Brandy (Mônt Castlé, Roulette), Whisky (Original Choice, Black Pelican) and Wine (Big Banyan, Goana’s). Each brand has won much appreciation. The endeavour to provide the best quality is evident in every product. Today, JDL has joined the ranks of India’s leading spirits companies.

To break into the higher echelons of the Single Malt world is no mean task. But Mr Paul P. John, the Chairman of JDL, wanted to create an Indian Single Malt that would enthral even the truest whisky connoisseur. Guided by his singular passion, tomes of wisdom and the extraordinary skill of his Master Distiller Michael D’Souza, he set forth on a journey to create
‘The Great Indian Single Malt’.

Take a sip and share a glimpse of his dream.
