Brandy Distillation

“Die distilleering proses is van die vroegeste tye gebruik om drank soorte soos brandewyn te vervaardig”

Brandy production at KWV started in 1926, and the company was the first to offer a commercial brandy in South Africa. The product, like so many other brandies from KWV, proved its popularity and consistent quality by winning sought after awards in international competitions.

South African brandy legislation which is of the strictest in the world, now specifies that the unmatured brandy spirit be aged for a minimum period of 3 years in oak barrels, with a volume not exceeding 340ℓ.
