The story of our South African brandy goes all the way back to before 1938 when the brandy was first distilled by one JP Marais, known as Kosie to his friends.
While other farmers in the region concentrated on wines, Kosie knew that Chenin Blanc and Colombar grew extremely well in Robertson and wereexceptionally well suited to brandy making.
So this part dreamer, part engineer set up his first distillery in his backyard and began crafting our South African brandy.
Current Klipdrift Brandy Master, Johan Venter knows that Kosie's winning formula is one worth sticking to and that is why his brandy-making skills and philosophies have been handed down from generation to generation of Klipdrift Brandy Master.
