South African whisky tasting at Die Bergkelder

So you thought whisky-making was only the preserve of the Scots? Think again. Join us on Thursday, 29 March, at Die Bergkelder and discover 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 over the years established many firsts for South Africa on the whisky front. Its distinctions include being the first local whisky brand, producing South Africa’s first single-malt as well as the first blend of South African and Scotch whiskies. It also gave the country its first 100% locally blended whisky and, more recently, the first single grain-whisky. These whiskies regularly take centre stage at international competitions receiving the highest recognition for their superior quality and craftsmanship.

Tickets cost R60 per person and include the tasting followed by a light meal. One lucky guest stands the chance of taking home a selection of the whiskies tasted.

The tasting forms part of a series offered by Die Bergkelder in Stellenbosch which covers whisky, brandy and wine. It takes place on the first Thursday of the month. Purchases made on the evening are subject to a 10% discount.
