Three Ships has come a long way since Captain James Sedgwick first sailed into the Cape as the master of the clipper "Undine" in 1850. Nine years later, he established J. Sedgwick & Co., purveyor of quality liquor, tobacco and cigars. In 1886, the distillery in Wellington, South Africa, was purchased ... and the rest is history. Today, over two centuries later, Three Ships Whisky is a world-class whisky produced at the 'state-of-the-art' James Sedgwick Distillery in the heart of the Cape Winelands, and is the preferred choice for local connoisseurs. Three Ships Select - is a high quality blend of South African and Scotch whiskies.
Due to its big, peaty nose, its well-balanced, smooth taste and long, full finish it has been rated above several top international brands on more than one occasion.
