World’s Best Grain Whisky 2013 and 2018 (World Whisky Awards)
South Africa’s sun-kissed grain is world-renowned in the distilling industry for its superior quality. It makes sense then that Bain’s is so flavourful, even though its only ingredients are water, yeast and grain.
The warm South African climate also accelerates maturation and the rate of flavour extraction from the oak, resulting in a smoothness normally only associated with much older whiskies.
Adding to the exceptional flavour profile and leading the innovation of whisky-making around the globe, Bain’s is distilled in column stills and uniquely double matured. The whisky is matured in first-fill American Oak casks previously used for the maturation of bourbon, first for three years before being re-vatted into a fresh set of casks for a further 18 to 30 months.
