Van Ryn's takes wines one step further and distills the fermented fruit into award-winning brandies. A visit here is like stepping back in time and into an opulent gentlemen's club. The sophisticated Brand Home perfectly sets the mood for tasting 10-year and 12-year-old vintages. If you are feeling extravagant, go for the brandy, coffee and chocolate tasting which includes the 20-year Collector's Reserve and hand-made Belgian chocolate. Tours allow you to check out the distillery and give you insight into the age-old art of brandy-making and drinking (R35).
