Cape of Storms was a limited release special bottling created to celebrate the launch of BenRiach into South Africa. In days gone by whisky casks were shipped as ballast in the trading vessels that rounded the Cape from the UK. The vessels would then return years later to the UK whereupon the casks would be removed, the whisky matured and influenced by the wood, the ship, the sea, the motion and the weather.
The bottles were made available for sale only in South Africa, launched at the Whisky Live Festival in 2007 as a 12 year old and 16 year old. The 12 was actually nearer 15 and the 16 actually nearer 19, but the time left maturing in South Africa was not allowed to be included on the age statement and only the period maturing in Scotland could be specified.
