    Timaru's premium Whisky bar

    A global selection

    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.

    Whisky lockers

    27 individual lockers are available to be rented each year. This is an ideal option, to protect your stash, guaranteeing your drink is available when you visit Saikou (ideal for limited editions). And drinking your spirit of choice with friends and colleagues from your locker is far more economical than buying a drink at a time from a bottle over the bar.
