Crafting a Legacy
Guided by his passion for whiskies, Michael D’Souza entered the world of distilling in 1993. Over the years, armed with knowledge and experience, he grew to become the master distiller for Paul John in 2004.
Inspired by the beauty of Goa, our Master Distiller, Michael D’Souza embarked on a mission to create the best Single Malt in World Whiskies – a Single Malt that is truly considered to be nothing short than work of art – each one perfected till the last dram.
Making sure that the highest standards and expectations are met, Master Distiller Michael lends his expertise to every stage of crafting The Great Indian Single Malt. Starting from the critical stage of mashing to fermentation, his guidance ends with the distillation and maturation of the whisky to the right perfection.
By setting up a distillery with an amalgamation of traditionally designed copper pot stills along with the best of time-tested processes and new age technologies, we brought to life the finest Single Malts the world has ever experienced.
Crafted from an exclusive range of hand-picked six-row barley from the foothills of Himalayas, the procedures of malting, mashing, fermenting, distilling, maturing, vatting and bottling, Michael’s production process is what makes the Paul John experience so unique.
Michael draws out the perfectly matured golden liquid form selectively chosen white American oak barrels and vats it into stainless steel tanks before crafting it to desired alcoholic strengths.
The natural, warm temperatures of Goa work in our favour, allowing the whisky to mature faster. The Angel’s Share of our Malts is around 8% per annum. The aroma, palate & finish of our Malts are unique as it is non-chill filtered.
The Spirit of Goa bottled up in six delightful variants, where the Paul John Brilliance is an absolute sensory delight. While the Paul John Edited gives you a hint of peat along with chocolate and mint rush to make the experience special for even the greatest whisky connoisseur.
The Paul John Select Cask Classic is an absolute tropical treat with its complex notes matured in selective chosen cask profiles. Our premium variant, Paul John Select Cask Peated balances a delightful amalgamation of flavours, that’s the Goa experience in a tipple.
With six variants to explore and fall in love with, won’t you take a moment to get to know each better?
