I recommend consuming whisky neat. Always.— Michael John D’souza, John Distilleries
Indians consumed 193.1 million nine-litre cases of whisky in 2016, just under half of the world total, according to International Wine and Spirits Research.
India produces 98.24% of the whisky it consumes.
John Distilleries produces “Paul John” whiskies using barley from the foothills of the Himalayas, double-distilling it in in specially designed, Indian-made copper pot stills, helped along by the highly beneficial Indian climate.
