South African brandy is enjoyed by many, but fully understood by few. On this tour we and discover the wonderfully complex spirit that is South African brandy which is known now to be the world’s finest. Brandy was first distilled in South Africa in 1672. We visit estates known for their particularly outstanding Brandies made in the Cognac style.
South Africa is now the third largest brandy producing country in the world and has been crowned as the Worldwide Best Brandy at the International Wine & Spirits Competition for seven consecutive years. The most recent jewel in the crown is Van Ryn’s 12 year old Distillers Reserve holding the 2015 title of World Wide Best Brandy Trophy – the highest award that any brandy can receive internationally.
Tasting destinations of choice: – Van Ryn’s Brandy Distillery, Backsberg, Tokara, Blaauwklippen, Uitkyk and Louisenhof.
