Van Ryn's Brandy

Van Ryn’s Distillery lies in the heart of the Stellenbosch Valley on the banks of the Eerste River. The Van Ryn’s brandy making history dates back to 1845 when Jan Van Ryn arrived in the Cape and the Van Ryn Wine and Spirit Company was established. The founder’s belief that the secret to creating a truly great brandy lies in its maturation still remains the cornerstone of the Van Ryn’s brandy making tradition. The distillery boasts an impressive variety of copper potstills – one of which dates back almost 200 years – and is still in daily use.
