KWV
The KWV House of Brandy in Worcester in the heart of the Breede River Valley comprises the biggest distillery of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, with a total of 120 copper potstills on the premises.
 
The giant KWV House of Brandy distillery also boasts a 25 hectolitre Charenté potstill and the cellar has a production capacity of 367 500 litres of wine per day. Here, brandies are carefully distilled twice to an alcohol strength of 70% by volume, ensuring sufficient copper contact and concentration of aromatic flavours.
 
In South Africa, grapes are grown specifically for brandy making purposes as opposed to some other countries where brandy making becomes a means of removing surplus alcohol, and it was found that grapes grown in the Breede River Valley produce brandies of exceptional quality.
