Bain's Cape

Bain's voted the World Best Grain Whisky

Bain's, Grain Whisky.

Named the World’s Best Grain Whisky at this year’s World Whisky Awards, Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is proudly South African in profile. 

Distiller of Bain’s Cape Mountain, Jeff Green said: “By taking the World’s Best Grain Whisky title we have amply demonstrated that South Africa can make exceptional whiskies.”

Green says South Africa's warm climate contributes to the excellence of their whiskies. He said the maturation process was accelerated by the faster interaction between wood, spirit and air to produce whiskies of great smoothness. "Essentially, the higher ambient temperatures mean our whiskies reach maturity at a younger age." 

Named the World’s Best Grain Whisky at this year’s World Whisky Awards, Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is proudly South African in profile.

This South Africa’s first single grain whisky, was uniquely double-matured to allow the maximum interaction between the cask and whisky. The whisky spent three years in specially selected ex-Bourbon casks and was vatted for a further two years in a fresh set of casks.

This made for attractive toffee, floral and vanilla aromas softened by sweet, spicy undertones, with a warm mouth-feel and smooth finish.

Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is available from leading liquor outlets for approximately R200 a 750 ml bottle.
