Malt & Grains

A proudly South African range of globally awarded whiskies calls for only the finest malted barley, maize and grain.

The Ingredients

The Angel's Share

Hand-selected casks are used for the maturation of our whiskies to impart unique flavours and aromas. As the wood is porous,
3-5% of the whisky is drunk by the barrel or lost to evaporation, this is known as the angel's share.
