Wild About Whiskey
Centally situated in Dullstroom’s main road you will find Auldstone House. It’s an ideal spot from where to explore Dullstroom. The view over the main road is of the hills to the east, making it a wonderful place to watch the ever-changing weather conditions. On the lower level guests can enjoy a whisky tasting at Wild about Whisky, South Africa’s best stocked whisky bar.
Lovingly referred to by locals and regular weekend Dullstroom-dwellers, simply as “The Whiskey Bar”, Wild-About-Whiskey opened their doors in 2006 with around a dozen whiskies. They slowly built up the menu to over one thousand whiskies from all over the world, and continue to add to it.
Our focus is on whisky tuition, and with the aid of visuals and our tastings we endeavour to educate those who enjoy whisky – says owner, and whiskey connoisseur, Steve.
Although it is a dedicated whisky bar, they also stock a small selection of wines, craft beer, other spirits and excellent coffee. All whiskeys are served by the tot. The owners travel fairly frequently to Scotland and other whisky producing regions, to further their knowledge and secure new whiskies; hence its reputation as the best stocked whiskey bar in South Africa!
Their whisky tastings tend to be a casual affair, aimed at individuals, couples, families or groups. Each tasting comprises 4 to 6 half-tots of various whiskies put together as examples to best represent their categories or styles. We recommend that you contact them to make a booking if you are part of a group of 4 or more.
As mentioned, Wild-About-Whiskey also stock a range of gins, brandies and other spirits, as well as a small range of wines, Innis & Gunn Scottish craft beers. So if you’re not a true whiskey fan, you can still enjoy another beverage with your group.
