WHISKY LIVE FESTIVAL BRAND INTRODUCTION SERIES
INTRODUCING Bain’s Whisky
In celebration of our 21-year legacy, Whisky Live is thrilled to invite you back to the Whisky Live Festival – an event that pays homage to the enchanting World of Whisky.
Over the next few weeks we are going to introduce to you our amazing range of product that you can expect to find and enjoy at Whisky Live, from 1 – 3 November 2023 at the Firs in Rosebank.
Bain’s distinctive aromas and delicate smooth flavour is a result of its unique provenance, climate and ingredients. The only whisky in the world to use 100% South African sun-kissed grain in its uniquely warm location. Uniquely double matured; first aged for three years in first-fill bourbon casks and then for another two years in fresh first-fill bourbon casks.
Aroma: Floral, banana, honey, toasted hazelnuts and toffee aromas unravel with wood, vanilla and spice.
Taste: Vanilla, cocoa butter and light spices from the casks lead to a warm mouthfeel and long, exceptionally smooth finish.
Pairing: Superb with spicy curries, smoked meats, salmon and sweet-chilli cashew nuts.
BAIN’S CAPE MOUNTAIN WHISKY 10YO SHIRAZ CASK FINISH
The Bain’s Cape Mountains Whisky 10-Year-Old Shiraz cask finish is an aromatic, full-bodied expression released at cask strength to demonstrate the creatively that our Founder Distiller has brought to the world of whisky.
After Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky initial double maturation, Andy finished the whisky for a further five years in ex-shiraz American Oak casks.
Un-chill filtered and natural in colour the whisky is presented in its purest form.
Shiraz Casks are rarely selected as a whisky finish, yet the complexity of the seasoned Shiraz casks selected enrich Bains’s Cape Mountain Whisky with layers of earthy red fruit and pepper, enlivening the whisky’s signature aromas of vanilla, toffee and spice.
