About Bain’s Whisky
Made with only 100% sun-kissed South African grain, in a region that boasts 850-million-year-old sandstone and a diversity of indigenous fynbos, there’s a story in each sip of Bain’s exceptionally smooth single grain whisky.
The taste of Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky reflects the unique place where it’s crafted, in the Cape Mountains, near the foothills of the Bainskloof Pass in Wellington in the Western Cape, South Africa. Only the finest South African grain is used, setting Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky apart from any other whisky produced in the world.
Launched in 2009, Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky pays tribute to Andrew Geddes Bain, whose vision, resolve and expertise conquered the Cape Mountains and built the architecturally splendid Bainskloof Pass, connecting the town of Wellington to the interior of the country in 1853.
The Bainskloof Pass, now a national monument, is a botanically-rich area of the Cape, made up of pine forests, a variety of indigenous fynbos, crisp, clear mountain pools and breathtakingly scenic views. Bain’s is inspired by the natural beauty of these Cape Mountains, and its high peaks, cool valleys and biodiversity influence the delicate flavours of our whisky to this day.

About Three Ships Whisky
Three Ships Whisky is produced at Africa’s only commercial whisky distillery, The James Sedgwick Distillery in Wellington, South Africa. The distillery is named after Captain James Sedgwick who settled at the Cape in the 1850s, establishing J. Sedgwick & Co., purveyor of quality liquor, tobacco and cigars in 1859. In 1886, his company purchased a brandy distillery in Wellington which changed hands many times over the years until we made it our home for South African Whisky in 1991.
The Three Ships Whisky range consists of the Three Ships Select, Three Ships 5 Year Old Premium Select, Three Ships Bourbon Cask Finish and the Three Ships 10 Year Old Single Malt Vintage 2006.
Our innovation and craft truly comes to life in the Master’s Collection released in limited quantities with interesting finishes and styles. These master pieces have included the Three Ships 10 Year Old Single Malt Single Cask PX Finish, Three Ships 15 Year Old Blend Pinotage Cask Finish, and more recently, the Three Ships Whisky 8 Year Old Single Malt Oloroso Cask Finish.

About Sotano Bree Street Restaurant
A first for Cape Town, Pintxos Bar at Sotano is the first dedicated Pintxos Bar in the Mother City. Pintxos (pronounced ‘peen-chos’) are small bites of Northern Spanish deliciousness, typically consumed early evenings after work. A selection of South African wines, local craft beers and cocktails is available to best accompany the food. Pintxos are designed to be enjoyed in a casual and convivial space so grab your colleagues or friends and join us for an early evening cocktail at the bar.
Inspired by the ethos of Mediterranean living, Sotano on Bree opens up on a beautiful lobby-style pinxtos bar with an abundance of natural light, a burst of turquoise and a crackling fireplace in the background. A staircase leads upstairs to the open plan main restaurant, a cosy lounge and outside deck, with an open sushi bar where the chefs go about creating magnificent eclectic sushi dishes.

About Brother Brother Band
For the band Brother Brother from Cape Town, music was always the tie that bound the two brothers Theunis (guitar, vocals and bass) and Roelof (vocals and guitar) van der Merwe. After the addition of Paul Avenant (percussion and Cajon), a friend turned brother, the band started to carve a big name for themselves in the South African Music Industry.
Influenced by bands like The Lumineers, Mumford and Sons and the vocal and musical mastery of Bon Iver, this Indie Folk band brings their own South African flavour to the mix, and their unique two-part and even three-part harmonies set them apart from most bands.
In 2016, only a year after their first official performance as a band, Brother Brother won the Music Experience Band Competition and they were awarded a slot at the sought after River Republic Festival as prize.
Together this family in blood and friendship create an enchanting musical blend of folk and fun, the perfect combination of beat and brotherhood to headline the first Woodifields Music on the Map festival. Other acts performing at the festival are Rebel Remedy, Prism Shore and Still Crazy, as well as a special performance by Mel Botes
