A perfectly-aged Corn Whisky from South Africa.

South Africa is more famous for its Wines, but there has been serious Whisky production here for more than one hundred years. The James Sedgwick Distillery was founded in Wellington, South Africa in 1886 and they have been producing aged Whiskies here since day one. Today, they are the only remaining production distillery in South Africa — producing their world-famous range of Three Ships Whiskies and Bain’s Cape Mountain Single Grain.

Bain's Cape Mountain Single Grain is made from 100% locally sourced South African yellow maize (corn). But this premium Whisky has a ton more flavor than most Corn Whiskies because it is double-aged — three full years in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks and then transferred to different set of first-fill ex-Bourbon casks for an additional eighteen to thirty months. This give the dram a flavor similar to a well-aged, high-corn Bourbon itself. And a mighty tasty one at that.

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
