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.
