India has been making whisky since the 1820s… Since then thousands of distilleries have come up… Not many people know India is one of the world’s biggest consumers and producers of whisky…— Michael John D’souza, John Distilleries
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.
