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.

    I booked in time for the distillery walk through, but we were told we were too late. Think the attention was just lacking.

    Welcome was great and the explanation of the different brandy’s was perfect. Pairing with chocolate made it a great tasting experience.

    Caily is such an amazing energy to the customers. Her service as well as that of the manager made the birthday afternoon worthwhile!
