Distell’s Bain’s Cape Mountain Single Grain Whisky (40% abv) has gone global.

Made in Wellington, South Africa, at the James Sedgwick distillery, Bain’s Single Grain Whisky is a double-matured whisky produced from 100% South African yellow maize.

The whisky is aged for three years in first-fill bourbon casks and then for another two years in new first-fill bourbon casks.

It pays tribute to 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.

It is described as a combination of toffee, floral and vanilla aromas on the nose; on the palate a hint of spice softened by undertones of oak; its finish warm and smooth.
