The debut of the Fine Brandy Fusion event in Cape Town is almost here. 9-10 May sees the event at the Cape Town International Convention centre, gathering brandy lovers from all walks of life.
Come celebrate the liquid gold, with the producers of fine brandy and share in the highlights, from trend-forward cocktails to the age-old craft of barrel-making.
“Hosting the highly successful Fine Brandy Fusion in Cape Town, after 6 years in Sandton, brings the event a stone’s throw from the spot where brandy was first distilled on a ship docked in Table Bay harbour 341 years ago” says Christelle Reade-Jahn, director of SA Brandy Foundation.
Standard Bank is the main sponsor, showing a firm commitment to South African producers.
Explore South Africa’s internationally admired brandy industry at this event, with beautiful interactive brand spaces and boutique stands. You can even share in the the FHM Brandy Cocktail of the year competition, at the Fusion Bar ‘Fynbos’. Experience the versatility of brandy with these and other taste-shaping cocktails at the event.
Fine Brandy Fusion is the perfect launch pad for new products. New artisanal brandy producers have come on board with their handmade liquid gold, that is up for nosing and tasting in the Potstill Lounge. The event is both a social happening and a learning experience where brandy enthusiasts can join in the popular hourly master classes.
There is simply nothing like South Africa’s finest anywhere in the world. Being the definitive collection of South African brandy under one roof, the brandy industry is well presented, with some benchmark cognacs from France also making an appearance. Festival goers will be able to taste for themselves why South African brandies are the most revered internationally and highly respected by connoisseurs across the globe.
The SA Brandy Foundation is a member of ARA. Fine Brandy Fusion supports moderate and responsible enjoyment of brandy.
Corporate Cab services are available.
