KWV HQ in Paarl

I have been drinking KWV brandies all my life. Great value, superb quality and unwavering reliability. Being called House of Fire is such a quirky touch!

The annual Veritas Wine Awards are renowned for being one of the most prestigious wine and spirits competitions in South Africa. This year, three KWV’s brandies were recognised for their outstanding and consistent quality during the 32nd annual event hosted in Paarl.


KWV’s 12 Year Old as well as the 15 Year Old Brandy was awarded a Double Gold medal, whilst the KWV 10 Year Old Brandy, a Gold medal.

What a lineup



The world-renowned status of KWV brandies is thanks to Master Distiller Pieter de  Bod. With over thirty years of experience, Pieter brings passion and expertise to every bottle produced at the distillery. His distilling methods have won KWV numerous accolades, including the prestigious International Wine & Spirits Competition Producer of the Year in 2022.
