Paul John Distillery was established in 2004 in Goa, South East India, and in just a few years has earned the respect and admiration of connoisseurs and enthusiasts all over the world. Paul John uses almost exclusively ex-bourbon casks to mature his whiskies. He has recently introduced Sherry casks but these are only used for special releases. All whiskies are bottled without cold filtration and contain no caramel or colouring agents.
Peat is the only ingredient that is not produced in India but imported directly from Scotland. Two types of peat are used: Islay, which is strong and pungent with a strong medicinal aroma, and Aberdeen, which is more herbaceous and vegetal.
