Andy Watts Master Distiller
The success of Bain’s comes down to one, innovative man and his passion for perfection, Master Distiller Andy Watts. In 1991, Andy became only the sixth manager of the home of Bain’s, The James Sedgwick Distillery, since its establishment in 1886. In the quarter century that he’s been there, he has become a world renowned Whisky Master, by winning countless awards and accolades.
Bain’s Single Grain Whisky is a double matured whisky produced from 100% South African Yellow Maize, you may call this corn. We first mature it in specially selected first-fill bourbon casks for a period of three years, we then transfer it to a second set of first-fill bourbon casks for a further 18 to 30 months to extract a full rich flavor like no other.
NOSE: Combination of toffee,
floral and vanilla aromas
PALATE: A hint of spice softened by
the sweet undertones of oak
FINISH: A warm and extended mouth-feel
with an exceptionally smooth finish
