Hailing from the tropical shores of Goa, along the west coast of India, comes the Paul John single malts, a golden spirit of brilliance, from John Distilleries.
Established in 1996, John Distilleries grew to be a leading spirit company within less than a decade, not just in India but across the globe. Under the commanding guidance of Mr. Paul P John, the company owns a strong portfolio of brands in various categories including whiskies, brandy and wines. Driven by the zest to break conventions, Paul P John, set out to penetrate the highest strata of the world of whisky to create a niche of his own, with the Paul John Indian Single Malts.
From the sultry coasts of Goa, the Paul John Indian Single Malts are made from carefully chosen indigenous ingredients – barley, water and yeast – that together create a radiance of a different kind. Goa’s tropical clime offers the ideal temperature and ambience for the whisky to mature to perfection. A culmination of the graceful union of art with science, the Paul John Indian Single Malts are made from a vigilantly watched process from the mashing of grains, fermentation, distillation, maturation, vatting and finally bottling. Paul John Indian Single Malt is non-chilled filtered and there are no additives.
The various expressions of Paul John whisky are the artistic fusion of Barley, Water, & American Oak Casks and each expression has a significant character of its own.
The journey to create the most sumptuous whisky lead to a family of 5 core expressions. BRILLIANCE, EDITED and BOLD are our flagship expressions. With 46% ABV, the BRILLIANCE is a non-peated whisky, EDITED has a hint of peat, while BOLD is the epitome of a peated whisky. The Select Casks whiskies are drawn from selected cask profiles and have a distinct and unique character. The CLASSIC is an elegant masterpiece from selected casks while the PEATED offers delicious wafts of peat.
NIRVANA is an unpeated expression bottled at an ABV of 40% and is an expression for those willing and keen to experience single malts, especially for the first time. Its exotic richness is sure to captivate whisky connoisseurs and amateurs equally.
We believe in taking the hitherto untrodden trail and often experimenting with different cask finishes, creating rarities. The OLOROSO, a limited edition, was the result of such an effort. This soft delicate single malt enriched with intense flavours, was finished in Oloroso casks and is a definite choice for any whisky enthusiast’s collection. The appreciation we received from the launch of our earlier limited Oloroso Single Cask encouraged us to introduce the Oloroso and PX expressions as part of our Select Cask range and are bottled at 48% ABV. Paul John OLOROSO, finished in Oloroso casks, owns sublime flavours reminiscent of dark chocolate and Melton Hunt Cake while the PEDRO XIMÉNEZ comes with layered aromas of fig, apricot and hints of banana. These whiskies owe their flavours to the handpicked Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks in which they are finished.
In 2018, Paul John whisky launched The MARS ORBITER. A commemorative expression to honour India’s successful space mission, the launch of the Indian space probe to Mars.
The Paul John Zodiac series celebrates Indian Astrology. Each Zodiac release by Paul John Whisky, possess characteristics unique to that zodiac sign. And the first to be launched of this series is the KANYA by Paul John. Ruled by Mercury and symbolised by the virgin, Kanya is the dignified Indian counterpart of the highly appealing Virgo, the sixth zodiac sign of the universe. With its earthy, feminine sensuousness, this deep amber expression personifies the intrinsic characteristics of the KANYA. Created in India, Paul John Whisky has won more than 250 awards in 8 years and continues to strive to enrich the experience of every sip.
