James Sedgwick

Bain’s single grain whisky is distilled and double matured at just one location, situated at the foot of the spectacular Bainskloof Pass – The James Sedgwick Distillery, the home of Bain’s, which is the only commercial whisky distillery in Africa.

Located 45 minutes from Cape Town, on the banks of the Berg River at the foot of the Bainskloof Pass, this picturesque distillery was purchased by J. Sedgwick & Co. in 1886. One of the most beautiful grain whisky distilleries in the world, The James Sedgwick Distillery has received global recognition.

The James Sedgwick Distillery is the only commercial distillery on our continent, and produces only the finest malt and grain whiskies. Every step of the whisky-making process on this expertly managed site is overseen by Master Distiller Andy Watts, who keeps a watchful eye from start to finish to ensure quality is guaranteed. It is this keen attention to detail that has established The James Sedgwick Distillery as a leader in whisky-making, producing award-winning whisky inspired by the beauty of Bainskloof.
