Usher in the festive season and summer holidays with the new-look Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky. Whether it’s a gift for a friend, a boss or to take to a dinner party, it won’t fail to impress. Expect a delicious combination of floral, banana, honey, toasted hazelnuts and toffee aromas that, when diluted with a splash of water, open up to include hints of wood, vanilla and spice.
Since launching in South Africa in 2009, Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky has been recognised worldwide at all the major international whisky competitions for its exceptional smoothness and unique taste. It was awarded World’s Best Grain Whisky at the 2013 World Whiskies Awards and, more recently, took the World Whisky Trophy at the 2016 International Spirits Challenge, as well as a fourth consecutive gold at the 2017 New York International Spirits Competition.
Not only is Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky the only whisky in the world to be made from South African maize, it is also double matured: first, for three years in casks previously used for the maturation of Bourbon; then re-vatted for a further two years into a fresh set of first-fill ex-Bourbon casks. This time-consuming process allows the spirit to extract incredible flavour and depth of character from the wood, resulting in a whisky that’s easy on the palate yet mesmerising and memorable.
