Bain’s Single Grain Whisky


Bain’s Single Grain Whisky is a double matured whisky produced from 100% South African yellow maize (you may call this corn). It's first matured in specially selected first-fill bourbon casks for a period of three years, then transferred to a second set of first-fill bourbon casks for a further 18 to 30 months, to extract a full, rich flavour like no other.

Musgrave Pink Gin

Musgrave Pink Gin has all of the spice and flavour of Musgrave 11 but is toned down to be gentler and less spicy and to bring out the floral of the rosehips and the infused rosewater. Musgrave pink celebrates the flower of love and beauty with the source of the rose, rosehip, which complements Musgrave's spicy nature. It is then infused with rosewater for its timeless perfume and romance.
