In a country where wine is king it is refreshing to know that internationally acclaimed whiskies are produced in the heart of the Boland.

 Join master distiller Andy Watts on Thursday, 1 September at Die Bergkelder for a tasting of the award-winning Three Ships range of whiskies and South Africa’s only single grain whisky, Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky.

Crafted at the James Sedgwick Distillery in Wellington, these whiskies have a heritage of establishing many firsts for South Africa on the whisky front. Its distinctions  include the first local whisky brand, the first single malt produced here, the first blend of South African and Scotch whiskies, a 100% locally blended whisky and, more recently, the first single grain whisky. These whiskies regularly take centre stage at international competitions and receive recognition for their superior quality and craftsmanship.

Tickets cost R60 per person and include the tasting followed by a hearty bowl of home-made soup, fresh bread and paté. One lucky guest stands the chance of taking home a selection of the whiskies tasted.

The tasting forms part of a series on offer by Die Bergkelder in Stellenbosch and include a selection of whiskies, brandies and wines on the first Thursday of the month. Purchases available on the evening at 10% discount.
