The Whisky Tasting Club





Indian distiller Paul John has successfully defended its title as Asian Distiller of The Year. And it did so this year with considerably more ease than it did when it held off strong opposition from indian distiller Amrut and Taiwanese distiller Kavalan.
Paul John, which last year went on to win World distiller of the Year, the highest accolade given in The Wizards of Whisky world Whisky Awards, has now won its category in both the years that it entered.
The distillery became the second major distillery to emerge from India after Amrut when it launched a core range of products in to the United Kingdom market some three years ago.
It initially launched a non-peated and lightly peated whisky and then a peaty whisky. but it is its single cask and cask strength whiskies that have got people turning heads.
This year, tough, facing a different judging panel to 2014, it picked up medals for both its core range and its excellent single casks. Full details on the medal winners will be published  next week
