PAUL P. JOHN - Chairman and Managing Director

  • An entrepreneur by choice, Paul P John was born in Kerala and spent much of his youth in Bangalore where he now resides.

    He ventured into the alcohol beverage industry in 1992 and within a short span of just over a decade, his reach spread from his headquarters in Bangalore, Karnataka expanded to all neighbouring states. Today the company is the 4th largest liquor company in the country by volume with a production spread across 8 locations & 7 states in India and an annual turnover exceeding Rs. 700 crores.

    His zeal to surpass the ordinary led him to create a range of exceptional single malts, fine whiskies & wines.


    Constantly driven to explore, expand, and achieve greater heights, he stepped into the hospitality industry with Kumarakom Lake Resort, a luxurious five star heritage resort set by the scenic banks of the Vembanad Lake in Kerala. Winner of innumerable national and international awards and accolades, Kumarakom Lake Resort is the realization of his dream to offer the ultimate in luxury tourism, creating 'perhaps the only paradise on earth'.

    This glorious venture was followed with an exclusive boutique hotel, The Paul Bangalore, nestled right in the center of Bangalore city. Renowned for its service and facilities, The Paul Bangalore, created a niche for itself in no time, bringing new meaning to the term luxury.

    Next in line to his chain of luxury properties is a deluxe 5-star resort in Coorg, with construction in progress, the resort is expected to be ready within two years. Also on the charts is a luxury heritage hotel in the delight town of Fort Kochi, set to bring the charms of the colonial world to the present day traveller by 2018.

    His personal passion for single malts leads him to create the Paul John Indian Single Malts. Launched in international markets, every expression of his single malts has won immense appreciation and several acclaimed international awards.
