Paul John Whisky expands to premium Brandy with Paul John XO
Published by Paul John Whisky, India on Sep 24, 2019.
Following the success of Paul John Whisky, Paul P John, Chairman of John Distilleries, now ventures into the premium brandy segment with the release of Paul John XO, a 100% Indian Grape Brandy.
Paul John XO is made from the famed Ugni Blanc and the rich Bangalore purple grape. The brandy is matured in specially selected, medium toasted new French limousine oak barrels.
With gentle honeyed aromas, orange zest and a touch of herbs that enhance the tender raisin and sweet oak flavours, the exotic Paul John XO is matured and distilled in Goa.
The tremendous appreciation of my single malts lead me to consider venturing into premium brandy as well. On research we discovered that the Indian grape like the Bangalore Purple and Ugni Blanc in India had much promise especially in terms of the rare and exotic flavour profile they could deliver to an XO. I chose to use medium toasted new French limousine oak barrels for Paul John XO to ensure that the experienced palate would feel comfortable with my XO and yet be able to enjoy the exclusive tropical richness that only Paul John XO offers. I am very excited with what we have created and I hope brandy connoisseurs feel the same.’- Paul P John, Chairman.
John XO is bottled at 46% ABV and will be released in October 2019 across select countries including USA, Europe, UK, South Africa, Japan, Taiwan and India.
