Jaan’s story begins in 2007 in Raj's home kitchen where the creation of this award-winning Paan Liqueur was first created by using the finest ingredients and his imagination. With a life long passion to create unique alcoholic beverages, an impossible dream became a reality; Jaan was born.

The Blending of Cultures

Handcrafted with care, integrity and lots of love, Jaan is locally made in Ontario, Canada and is inspired by two cultures becoming one, where the East meets the West.

By combining Eastern flavours of paan along with exotic Indian spices (cardamon, anise, cinnamon, rose, clove, beetle leaf) and blend it with vanilla, citrus and maple to produce our award-winning liqueur. 


Jaan’s cross-cultural combinations are full of aromatics, unique flavours are the perfect modern twist on an age-old tradition.
