Paul John

Established in 1992, John Distilleries rise to being a leading spirit company has happened within less than a decade. Its creation ‘Paul John Single Malts’ were launched in the UK in 2012.  John Distilleries is based in Bangalore, but its single malt distillery is located in Goa. The distillery has two sets of Indian-made copper pot stills (wash and spirit) that can produce 6000 litres daily. Maturation takes place in a climate-controlled underground cellar that has around 10,000 barrels. 

The company had been making blended whisky since its foundation but decided to create single malt whisky in 2008 in an attempt to enter the premium end of the market. Master distiller Michael D'souza chose to use Indian ingredients, including 6 row barley, in the making of the single malts, to give the whisky characteristics of its country of origin. The wash created has an abv of 5%, lower than the standard 8% for most whisky. This creates a sweeter flavour in the final product. The whisky is put in the casks at 55% abv, but the alcoholic strength increases as it ages due to the heat, giving the final product an abv of 57%. There are a number of variations in the brands whiskies, from the unpeated through to the heavily peated and numerous single casks
