The WhiskyBrother Bar Is Upon Us


Johannesburg’s first dedicated whisky bar, the WhiskyBrother Bar, will be launched in January to offer connoisseurs and lovers of the “water of life” a new whisky drinking experience.

Whisky lovers have been flocking to the WhiskyBrother store in Hyde Park to find rare and exquisite whiskies over the past five years. They will now be able to visit the bar which is solely dedicated to whisky where they can learn more about it, share their experience, taste a wide range of international and local varieties and meet other whisky lovers to grow the local whisky community.

The WhiskyBrother Bar is located in the Morningside Shopping Centre on Rivonia Road, Sandton. It boasts a tasting room for eight people, while 28 people can be served in the bar itself. According to Pendlebury the bar was designed as a shrine to whisky, incorporating whisky-related materials to offer a smart and comfortable setting to showcase the growing selection of 865 whiskies from various countries, styles and categories.

“We are very excited and proud to offer this addition to the local whisky scene. WhiskyBrother was established to fulfill the needs of passionate whisky drinkers and we believe that the WhiskyBrother Bar will add to the unique whisky-only experience we offer,” says Marc Pendlebury, one of the owners.

He says the bar will offer whiskies at prices that range from R25 to R6 600 per tot for whiskies from sixteen countries, with a total of 657 varieties from Scotland alone.

The bar’s two limited annual membership options, where members can choose between the Copper and Oak memberships, have already been sold out.
