The Sexton Irish Single Malt, an unexpected whiskey set to send shivers through the SA spirits category, has been launched by Truman & Orange, the premium drinks company with a reputation for sourcing unique discovery brands for discerning South African drinkers.
The Sexton Irish SINGLE MALT is an interesting whiskey from several angles – and we are not only referring to its distinctive, dark hexagonal bottle. Firstly, it is an Irish single malt: a rarity in South Africa. While there are a number of Scotch single malts on South African shelves, Irish ones are few and far between.
The Sexton is made with 100% Irish malted barley, distilled in copper pot stills and exclusively matured in hand-selected first-, second- and third-fill Oloroso sherry casks to achieve a perfect balance between rich dried fruits and memorable toasted oak notes to offer a smooth finish.
The Sexton is a single malt made with a respect for tradition and a passion for innovation. This is not marketing malarkey: it was created by Alex Thomas (a woman) who founded the brand based on personal experience and 15 years of creating whiskey. Whiskey is in her blood. RRP R499 per bottle
