On 19-09-2018, we opened the Master’s Collection store for the third time. In an incredibly exciting start, 151 bottles were sold in the first 15 minutes - that's 10 bottles a minute and at the end of the day, only a few bottles remained unsold. Watch the live stream of the sale above and if you didn’t manage to get your bottle, the remaining bottles of Three Ships Whisky 8 Year Old Single Malt Oloroso Cask Finish will be available from early October at select Checkers outlets, Whisky Brother, Norman Good Fellows and The James Sedgwick Distillery.
In true double wood mastery, our Master Distiller, Andy Watts, selected a 5 year old single malt matured in American Oak, to rest in Oloroso sherry casks for a further 3 years. The Three Ships Whisky 8 Year Old Single Malt Oloroso Cask Finish is another exceptional testament to South African whisky and is a treasure to enjoy or to keep.
Oloroso which means ‘scented’ in Spanish is a warm and nutty sherry and the gentle smoke of the single malt blends seamlessly with the layers of dark chocolate, sweet citrus and red cherries typical of Oloroso cask finishes. Only a limited number of bottles of this extraordinary whisky have been made and, as always, we gave you the opportunity to get one of the first bottles right here.
South Africa, a place of self-made men, hustlers, dreamers, entrepreneurs and believers. A place where the climate was too unforgiving for whisky making. A place where we proved them wrong.
We have been producing South African whiskies for 40 years and have a number of awards and whisky firsts to prove that if you have the heart for it, anything can be done.
In the 3rd online live sale, we mixed things up with a shot of star power by bringing together Master Distiller, Andy Watts, and Expresso presenter and whisky enthusiast, Katlego Maboe. Together they hosted the sale and took viewers to various special locations within the distillery to sell bottles 2 – 11. While the rest of the bottles were flying off the shelves, Andy and Katlego spent the day answering viewer questions which makes for some excellent listening for whisky enthusiasts. Don’t forget to follow the Master’s Collection on Twitter to be the first to know when the store will be open again.
