Legend has it that Dutch sailors distilled Chenin Blanc on their voyages in order for it to last the trip. Soon enough, they realised that this process drastically changed the taste of the wine, leaving it more potent and deep amber in colour. Experimentation and several voyages lead to the discovery of fruity, herbaceous, even smokey distillations, and the establishment of a brand-new spirit. Enjoy blended varietals with your favourite mixer. Potstill or Vintage brandies are best served neat. A true South African favourite!
