The African Bonfire Whisky is our expression of an African Style Whisky. This sorghum malt based whisky is matured using African indigenous Camel Thorn wood. This complex whisky has a subtle smokiness, deep red colour and a touch of sweetness on the palate. It has been described as a Bushveld fireside braai experience in a bottle.
A single malt whisky, carefully made using a selection of specialised malts. Once fermented, the wash is potstilled twice to retain the wonderful maltiness. The pure heart cut is matured in custom 100 L toasted hybrid French and American oak casks, until the optimum marriage of wood and malt is obtained. This whisky is non-chill filtered to retain its optimum colour and flavour.

Finish: Long and warm with a lingering malt character.
