South African Brandy Foundation

South African Brandy Foundation

Established in 1984, The South African Brandy Foundation is a registered non-profit organisation with offices in Stellenbosch. It aims to facilitate the long term growth and preserve the integrity and heritage of the South African brandy industry. The Foundation represents more than 95% of South African brandy producers.

The first brandy in South Africa was distilled aboard the Dutch ship De Pijl, anchored in Table Bay harbour in 1672. The assistant cook succeeded in transforming two leaguers (1164 litres) of Cape wine into “three ankers (126 litres) of delicious brandy”.

Today, South African brandy is acknowledged to be the world’s finest. Comprehensive legislation and a proud tradition ensure that our brandy is of the highest quality. The title of Worldwide Best Brandy at the International Wine & Spirits competition has been awarded to a South African brandy for six consecutive years.
