New brandy booklet on the market

The South African Brandy Foundation released a nifty new booklet on South African brandy dealing with most frequently asked questions.

by: Food24 | 15 Nov 2007

South Africa has been manufacturing brandy for almost three-and-a-half centauries; it is the fifth largest producer of brandy in the world. Majority of which is consumed locally but, as more foreign visitors are exposed to our brandy, the more exports have grown.

The contents, divided in seven concise sections, includes to the point information on topics ranging from types of grapes and wine used to make brandy; the art of distillation; maturation and blending; brandy styles and practical advice on storing and serving brandy, to where to visit a brandy distillery.

The FAQ brandy booklet forms part of the South African Brandy Foundation’s comprehensive consumer programme aimed at brandy education and raising awareness of South African brandy’s superior quality. Attractive and easy to read, the booklet has been compiled by brandy experts, making it a credible introduction to this field.

The FAQ booklet is available free of charge to culinary, beverage and bar training institutes. Complimentary copies are also available at brandy distilleries on the two brandy routes, i.e. the R62 and Western Cape brandy routes.

To order a free copy of the FAQ brandy booklet, e-mail at or fax 021- 886 6381.
