    Whisky

    Once derided as somewhat out of fashion, whisk(e)y, whether it's bourbon, Scotch, rye, Japanese whisky, or more unusual global offerings, has come roaring back in popularity. And as with all things whisky-related, Saikou offers the best bar in Timaru to sip in a dram, with a massive (and comparatively inexpensive) selection of rare bottles from special distilleries.
