Asian Distillery of the year 2016
The last few months have been very exciting for all of us at John Distilleries. Our youngest expression ‘Bold’ was appreciated and loved the world over. Jim Murray gave all our whiskies the ‘Liquid Gold’ rating in his latest Whisky Bible. Right after that, we were conferred the Asian Distillery of the Year 2016. And what makes this accolade sweeter is that we won it for the second consecutive year.
Paul John Single Malts have been steadily making their mark in the New World whisky order. And Dominic Roskrow reaffirms this in his blog, where he writes, “India has reinforced its reputation for great New World whisky, with the highest concentration of gold medals than anywhere else in the world in this year’s Wizards of Whisky.”
We also went on to win three golds and two silvers for our whiskies. While Bold took everyone by surprise, Classic and Peated continued to reign supreme as all-time favourites.
Here’s a quick look at the award tally.

We hope to continue this brilliant run.
