South Africa – Bain’s Cape Mountain WhiskyBuy It Here
South Africans have a solid knowledge of spirits production thanks to all the brandy made there. Bain’s, from The James Sedgewick Distillery in Wellington, is the first single grain whisky the 100-year-old whiskey maker has produced, meaning it’s made entirely from unmalted South African corn. It’s aged in first-fill bourbon casks for about five years, and the extreme heat of the climate accelerates the aging process. While it’s lighter than you may expect, it packs a rich caramel and custard nose and a pleasant fruity and slightly spicy finish. For the price, the bottle is an easy daily drinker.
