The Van Ryns Distillery, housed in a beautifully preserved historic complex on the banks of the Eerste River, is the only brandy distillery in Stellenbosch. It is also home to the worlds best brandy. Thats the opinion of the judges of the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London. They have awarded Van Ryns the annual title of IWSC Worldwide Best Brandy no fewer than five times! Van Ryns has also won the International Spirits Competition (ISC) Best Brandy trophy three times.

    Current offering is by far not as attractive anymore as before. No welcome drink, no tour….

    I was disappointed we couldn't see the production and the Distillery. I understand the Covid 19 regulations decisions around not allowing customers there but, they could have put up a see thru glass like The House of Jc le Roux did.
