South African whiskies
South African whisky has a long history, dating back to the early 1800s when the first distillery was established in Cape Town. South African whisky is typically distilled using column stills, and the spirit is matured in a variety of different barrels, including ex-bourbon, ex-sherry, and ex-wine barrels. The climate in South Africa is hot and humid, which results in a higher evaporation rate and thus, a more intense flavour profile. South African whisky is a great option for those looking for something different.
