World class at its best

 

When it comes to world class brandy the words TIME and WOOD add immeasurably to the cost. They also add to what makes the brandy magnificent. Every year that the brandy lies in barrels some of it evaporates –that is the Angel’s Share–and this intensification of the flavours is a huge factor in its development. Some of the finest brandies in the world are made right here and Tokara has a superb example.

 

A superb gift for a brandy lover.

This prestigious family owned Stellenbosch wine estate, has won international acclaim once again with its luxurious, hand-crafted XO Potstill Brandy, bringing home a second Brandy Masters Gold Medal at The Spirits Business awards in London .

The Chenin blanc base wine is double distilled retaining only the heart fraction for ageing in individual French Limousin oak casks for 13 years and longer. (See what I mean?) Unctuous and complex with great depth of character, the palate delivers rich flavours of caramel, dried apricots and cocoa butter with a spicy finish and fine length.

The glory that is Tokara
