Fine Brandy Fusion Sandton 2015
Fine Brandy Fusion is a showcase of South Africa`s top brandy producers and offers the opportunity to sample contemporary brandy cocktails, hand crafted and award winning potstill brandies and experience 12 of the most amazing aromas that add to experience and texture of liquid gold.
South Africa is renowned as one of the world's finest brandy producers, and yet not many South Africans known that. Which is just one of the reasons why you should head down to the Sandton leg of the Fine Brandy Fusion event.
The tradition of distilling brandy has been around in South Africa since the 1600's when a Dutch ship docked at the Cape and off loaded the golden goodness. The process of brandy distillation is a precise one, which is strictly governed by South African law. The law in South Africa also dictates that there be 3 classes of brandy - potstill, vintage, which is potstill brandy blended with matured wine spirit, and blended brandy, which is potstill blended with unmatured wine spirit. While the alcohol content remains the same for each class, the flavour changes.
At the Fine Brandy Fusion Sandton event you can expect to taste these brandies and learn more about the distillery process at the popular master classes. These master classes are included in the ticket price but must be booked in advance.
Master mixologist Kurt Schlechter will be doing a molecular mixology demonstration, and you’ll also get the chance to watch a barrel-making demonstration. After all the brandy education, you can head to the cocktail bar and sample South African brandy delights in your own way.
