43% ABV, from South Africa
South Africa’s “first and only” single-grain whisky was awarded a Gold at this year’s World Whisky Masters. One judge said: “This expression has a freshness that pulls it together”. The Distill-owned brand is produced by master distiller Andy Watts at the James Sedgwick Distillery in Wellington, and is made from 100% South African yellow maize and Cape Mountain water.
Inspired by the Cape Mountains and its natural beauty, Bain’s Single Grain Whisky is the first of its kind in South Africa. It pays tribute to the man, Andrew Geddes Bain, who built the Bainskloof Pass that connects the town of Wellington, where the distillery is located, to the interior of the country back in 1853.
Bain’s Single Grain Whisky is a double matured whisky produced from 100% South African Yellow Maize. It is first mature in specially selected first-fill bourbon casks for a period of three years, then transfered to a second set of first-fill bourbon casks for a further 18 to 30 months to extract a full rich flavor.
