South African Whisky and Its Distiller Named World’s Best

Give that man a Bain's!!!

At a gala dinner at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel on 22 March 2018, Bain’s was awarded 2018 World’s Best Grain Whisky… and the company’s Founder Distiller, Andy Watts, was named the 2018 Global Icons of Whisky Master Distiller/Blender!

Watts – who’s not new to awards (he won World’s Best Grain Whisky in 2013, amongst several other gold awards around the world) – said this event was the most humbling experience of his 34-year career in the whisky industry. (As someone joked on Andy’s Facebook page – “Give that man a… Bain’s!”)

The company is Africa’s only commercial whisky distillery, and proudly makes its whisky from 100% South African-grown corn.
