BLEND YOUR OWN AT AFRICA’S ONLY COMMERCIAL WHISKY DISTILLERY

This festive season you can try your hand at being a whisky master for a day at The James Sedgwick Distillery, situated in Wellington an hour’s drive from Cape Town and home to the proudly South African range of Three Ships Whisky and Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky.

The distillery, now open to the public, offers guests a one-of-a-kind whisky experience as part of their tour and tasting. The micro-distillery is situated in the tasting room and with innovative technology and a custom-made simulation of a whisky distillery offers guests the unique opportunity to blend their own whisky.

Select from slightly peated to heavy peated malt, and older and lighter wood grain expressions in creating the exact balance you think your palate would enjoy. Master distiller Andy Watts has pre-selected a few blends should you rather trust his judgement rather than your own! Watch with anticipation as your whisky is blended and presented in a gift box to savour at home. Read more BLEND YOUR OWN AT AFRICA’S ONLY COMMERCIAL WHISKY DISTILLERY

Just in time for tourist season, renovations to the Castle of Good Hope have come to an end. Not only does this attraction now boast a fresh new look, it also offers greater access to previously unseen areas.

Specialists in the construction, renovation and recycling of buildings, GVK-Siya Zama, have spent the past 22 months restoring South Africa’s oldest building. The seven buildings within the Castle walls have been repainted and have had new carpentry installed.

The deteriorated waterproofing on the roofs and ramparts were replaced and the stone moat walls and banks were mended. The project also included the refurbishment of murals by hand, renovations to the Dolphin Pool and specialist plaster repairs.

Wine Pairing with Nougat and Fudge at Perdeberg Wines

Participating in a traditional wine tasting venture is often an aromatic, sensory experience which is fairly more exciting

when tasting a new, unfamiliar brand, or even a newly launched range from your favourite winery. Either way, one gets to learn, taste and tickle your taste buds. What is even better is when decadently delicious food items are paired with these already fragrant tastings.

Sweet, sugary and sticky is what Perdeberg Wines is offering visitors this month in the form of their Nougat and Fudge wine pairing experience. Made for those with a sweet tooth, or perhaps those who love blending sweet and zesty, each sweetened food item adds texture to the wine tasting, which enhances the level of crispness, freshness and flavour of each sip.
