Get ready to sip your way through 2018 with Whistler Rum, Hello Joburgers!
Launch date: Launched in November 2017.
Whistler has two products on the market at present –
A true spiced rum. So new and different in South Africa that the government could not classify it. Infused with secret barrel-aged spices, creating softer, mellow flavour notes of cinnamon, vanilla and citrus. It’s loud and extroverted. Almost like December in Plettenberg Bay, only grown up and a little naughtier.
It’s dark, it’s rich and its golden brown colour should be obvious. With deep flavour notes of dark chocolate, toasted toffee and roasted ground nuts, it’s like a sexy, nocturnal pudding, only manlier and more fun to share with people.
We recommend that you have some ginger beer to fix yourself up if you’re having a rough morning. Ginger beer is also a great mix with Whistler rum, so when you’re feeling better, you’ll have the ginger beer ready for your next drink.
Try one @ R299 per bottle, available via Takealot, Norman Goodfellows and selected Ultra Liquors, Tops at Spar, Checkers and Pick ‘n Pay Liquor outlets.
Must- Try Cocktail:
The Free State Sand Storm:
A tribute to the red August dust storms around the Whistler Distillery. If you’ve ever spent August in Bloemfontein, you’ll know the sight of winds blowing across dry red fields.
Ginger beer, bitters and Whistler Spiced Rum. It’s as simple as that. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary or slice of citrus for a drink the colour of the Free State in Spring and as refreshing as the first summer rains.
