Van Ryn’s Distillery lies in the heart of the Stellenbosch Valley on the banks of the Eerste River. The Van Ryn’s legendary brandy making history dates back to 1845 when Jan van Ryn arrived in the Cape. The Van Ryn Wine and Spirit Company was established and with it a proud tradition of brandy excellence that remains unparalleled in South Africa. The founder’s belief that the secret to creating a truly great brandy lies in its maturation still remains the cornerstone of the Van Ryn’s brandy making tradition. The Van Ryn’s Distillery boasts an impressive variety of copper potstills – one of which dates back almost 200 years – and is still in daily use. It is a living testament to the age-old art of crafting fine brandy and South African brandy culture.

Another regular international medallist as well as the winner of the Best Brandy trophy at the International Spirits Challenge in 2010, this proud potstill is a reflection of the meticulous attention to quality paid by founder Jan van Ryn, who set the benchmark for excellence in South African brandies. It shows an intensity of fruit characters with a twist of citrus and a delectable trace of chocolate. Rich in colour and flavour, its honeyed-citrus aromas unfurl to reveal a full palate laced with sweet oak spices. A creamy texture ends in a lingering but satisfyingly clean finish.
