In Leanie Louw's words: "We invite you for a visit to the Van Ryn Brandy Distillery's where you can delight in their fine brandies while embarking on a journey through time. You will see how brandy is distilled in an old 19th century copper pot still, watch how the cooper practices his ancient craft and witness the maturation of fine brandies in process. For a unique and luxurious tasting experience, the Van Ryn Brandy Distillery will present a brandy and chocolate pairing featuring three award winning potstill brandies paired with hand made chocolates to complement the rich brandy flavours. You can expect a wide spectrum of brandy flavours; from rich fruitiness with spices to fragrant cigar box notes to mixtures of decadent chocolate aromas and elegant vanilla notes."
