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.
WHAT MAKES PAUL JOHN THE GREAT INDIAN SINGLE MALT
The production of the finest Single Malt Indian Whisky has its ABV craft fully measured and adhered. With the flagship consisting of 46% ABV, Single Cask 55.5% ABV, Oloroso 57.5% ABV and Kanya with 50%ABV.
The Indian 6-Row Barley is used to create the unique flavour profile of Paul John Single malts. Sourced from across the vast lands of Rajasthan to the verdant foothills of the Himalayas.
The non chill-filtered factor of the Paul John Indian Single Malt, enables it to produce a 100% natural flavoured whisky without any added preservatives or colours.
No Added Flavour or Colour
The Great Indian Single Malt takes pride in being 100% natural with no added colours or flavours. The whisky is produced in its finest form to cater to its finest clienteles.
Water is another major ingredient in the making of single malts and we use the pure underground table of water along with rain-fed water sources. We also use water flowing through the Western Ghats, which is naturally filtered through Goan wetlands.
Our Copper pot-stills, custom-made exclusively for Paul John whisky in India, were specially designed with long necks to create fruitier spirits.
Imported charred American Oak barrels and Sherry Cask barrels are used for the aging of the new make spirit. These oaks add on to the flavour, aroma and colour of the Indian Single Malt whisky.
Goa Tropical Climate
The rows of palm trees, tropical sultry climate and fresh rainwater flowing through the coastline of the Western Ghats; produces an enticing whisky taste, encapsulating the essence of India. The angel share in Goa is 8%, thus enabling a faster maturation.

The mystique of The Great Indian Single Malt needs to be unraveled with great mastery. Bring alive the many facets of Goa and experience the heady sensations it has to offer.
The aroma of the Paul John single malt will transport you to the exotic land of India. Hold the rim of the glass an inch away from your nose & tilt the glass slightly towards yourself. Gently breathe in the aromas & discover the exoticism of India.
Pour yourself a small peg of the Single Malt. For the best experience, use a snifter, or a tulip glass. Allow it to breathe for at least ten minutes.
Now swirl it around gently, letting the Single Malt coat the glass. As the volatile vapours break free, the first hint of aromas sets in. Take a moment to admire the consistency of the amber liquid as it coats your glass.
To experience The Great Indian Single Malt at its best, do not add any water. But if you do wish to underplay the flavours a bit, add no more than a few drops of water.
Savour India by taking the tiniest of sips. Take in just enough to coat your mouth. Swirl it around your tongue, tantalising every single taste bud. Feel the consistency. Let the flavours speak. Then swallow.
The finish lets you linger, allowing you to savour The Great Indian Single Malt for a little longer. The aftertaste leaves you with a subtle yet distinct and definitely memorable impression.
