Aged to Perfection

Our expert presenter on the night will be Sean Gunns, an owner of The Whisky Rebellion. Our manifesto is the following:

Company Manifesto:

The Whisky Rebellion stands for freedom, from the first sip to the last. We dismantle the rules, challenge tradition, enlighten minds and release the elitism of the spirits world through bespoke tasting experiences that will change the way you drink it. The Whisky Rebellion. A liberation of fine spirit.

We have been in the spirits industry for the past six years, working in import/export trade and boutique events. We have gained knowledge and expertise through extensive global travel in order to give high level tasting experiences based around the spirit rather than the individual products - i.e. we are not
brand representatives. As shareholders of the infamous Wild About Whisky bar in Dullstroom, we have designed a platform with which to take an educational stance on the world of spirits and engage all the senses to show you how your brain interprets flavour and smell.

Founded in 1846 by John Dewar, John Dewar & Sons Ltd has grown from a small wine and spirits merchant shop in Perth, Scotland, to become a global brand. The John Dewar and Sons Fine Whisky Emporium boasts a collection of some of the finest single malt distilleries as well as some of the worlds most successful Scotch blends. This tasting will explore two premium blended products (Dewar's) and the two core single malts (Aultmore) that form part of the iconic taste of Dewar's. Often shrouded in fog, Aultmore distillery exudes a secretive air (its sought-after spirit has been dubbed the ‘Rarest of Speyside’). This covert classic, long ago rated ‘Top Class’ by industry experts, is linked to the mysterious terrain of the
Foggie Moss, where wild, wet undergrowth of bracken, gorse and heather naturally filter the waters that furnish the distillery. The tasting is finalised by a surprise product, new to South Africa, and sure to leave a lasting impression.

We'll be tasting the following whiskies:
Dewar's 12 Year Old
Dewar's 15 Year Old
Aultmore 12 Year Old
Aultmore 18 Year Old
And a surprise product new to SA to finish off the tasting.
