Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky, the proudly South African single grain premium whisky, stole the show at this year’s New York International Spirits Competition, when it received a double gold award.
The distinctive taste of Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky has impressed the palates of elite whisky connoisseurs around the world to such an extent, that it has received prestigious accolades at all the major international whisky competitions. It is one of the most talked about whiskies in the world, since being awarded the World’s Best Grain Whisky at the 2013 World Whisky Awards held in March this year.
Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is crafted from the finest South African grain and holds toffee, floral and vanilla aromas softened by sweet, spicy undertones, a warm mouth-feel and a long, smooth finish. The whisky is double-matured, spending three years in casks previously used for bourbon and then re-vatted for a period of time in a fresh set of casks. This allows maximum interaction between the wood and the whisky.
Distilled at The James Sedgwick Distillery in Wellington, Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is inspired by the natural beauty of the Bain’s Kloof Pass. The whisky pays tribute to Andrew Geddes Bain, the pioneering pass builder who planned and built Bain’s Kloof Pass in 1853 to connect Wellington to the interior.
Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is available from leading liquor outlets and retails for about R220.
