Amrut got whisky lovers used to the idea of single malt whiskies from India, and now, Paul John is challenging Amrut’s standing as the leader in Indian single malts. John Distilleries has been making single malt whisky in Goa for the last 10 years, but only started exporting it to the UK and Europe in 2012. The Paul John whiskies have now arrived in Australia, and are expected to enter the US market in 2015. Krish Kumar of Paul John explains the distillery’s story on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth.

In the news, Maker’s Mark is now facing a court challenge over its claims of being “handmade”, another Bourbon attraction is coming to downtown Louisville, and the airport security guards are going to love a new shoe design coming from London…one with compartments for whisky bottles in the heels!
