Paul P John, Chairman of John Distilleries, ventured into the alcohol beverage industry in 1996 and within a short span of just over a decade, his reach spread from his headquarters in Bangalore, Karnataka to neighbouring states in India and beyond seas as well.

His personal passion for single malts led him to create the Paul John Indian Single Malts. After intense and in-depth research he realized that premium single malts can be created in India using native ingredients, hence he strode ahead, putting up the malt plant in Goa and eventually creating some of the finest single malts the world has enjoyed. Launched in international markets, each expression of his single malts has won immense appreciation and innumerable acclaimed international awards.

Guided by his passion, tomes of wisdom and the extraordinary skill of his Master Distiller Michael D'souza, he has thus been able to bring the soul of India to the rest of the world.

Paul John Single Malt Whisky


Age old culture, lush tropical mangroves with glorious beaches, delectable cuisines and kind hospitality, Goa always has an extraordinary enchantment in its air. That's probably why Goa is not just a place but a whole experience. And that's why Goa is home to our Single Malts.

Calm, serene, yet incredibly full of life, Goa is steeped in history. With its rich colonial heritage, white sand beaches, gurgling backwaters, pleasantly charming people and an atmosphere of general cheer, Goa is not a place to be rushed. Much like a good Single Malt. That's why we chose this beautiful tropical coast to craft our Single Malts. The many characteristics of Goa are captured in each of our creations. Moreover, the tropical clime and humidity truly help mature the whiskies faster, giving them their own, signature character.
