Paul John Indian Single Malt Whisky has changed its U.S. importer.
The producer has named 375 Park Avenue Spirits as the exclusive U.S. importer for Paul John, effective July 1, 2019.
“We’re ecstatic to be welcoming the Paul John portfolio range to the 375 Park Avenue Spirits family, and in doing so, adding a brand that has been a true pioneer in the Indian Single Malt category,” says Jason Schladenhauffen, president and CEO of 375 Park Avenue Spirits. “Paul John is an industry visionary and we’re honored to be partnering with him in the U.S. to further build this portfolio into a formidable Whisky player.”
375 Park Avenue Spirits will carry eight expressions from Paul John Indian Single Malt portfolio: Brilliance, Edited, Bold, Classic and Peated as part of the core range, and Kanya, Mars Orbiter and the Christmas Edition as part of the Special Edition offerings.
“The Indian single malt category, while young, has burst onto the global and U.S. scene, and there’s no brand better positioned to carry the flag forward than Paul John, given its exquisite range of highly awarded single malt offerings,” says Schladenhauffen.
Suggested retail pricing ranges from $59.99 to $449.99. These products will be available nationally.
Launched in 2012, Paul John Single Malt Whisky is an award-winning Indian Single Malt distilled at John Distillery in the tropics of Goa. The whiskies are produced from Indian six-row barley, grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, and harvested in summer.
Master Distiller Michael D’souza uses copper pot-stills made in India that were specially designed with long necks to produce fruitier spirits, the company says. After double-distillation, the whisky matures in American white oak barrels.
“We’re very excited about our association with 375 Park Avenue Spirits and are looking forward to working with the team,” says Paul P John, chairman of John Distilleries. “I believe the drive and focus of 375 Park Avenue will realize my vision of making Paul John single malts one of the leading new world single malts in the USA.”
