The craft production, see gin, rum, ready-to-serve cocktails, mixers, and from them the emerging mixology game, are upping itself. It’s changing the very definition of how our previous generations defined the drink and how we do it now. However, forget not, even before they did it, whiskies had already been upping its offerings. And amidst them, one that has already gained a legendary status not just with the denizens but amongst the world’s leading connoisseurs is Paul John Single Malt Whisky.
