Standard Bank is the main sponsor, showing a firm commitment to South African producers.

There will be lots to see, do, nose and sip for the young and trendy, sophisticates and connoisseurs eager to explore South Africa's internationally admired brandy industry at this über-glamorous annual event. Hitting the right vibe as part celebration, part learning experience, Fine Brandy Fusion reflects brandy's refined and its lighter side, merging a fusion of cultures and styles.

"We celebrate the event with a host of brand new concepts and a return of popular highlights, from trend forward cocktails to the age-old craft of barrel-making," says Christelle Reade-Jahn, director of the SA Brandy Foundation. Keeping the rhythm as MC is Proverb, an avid brandy enthusiast and well-known personality. The acclaimed instrumental pop group Sterling EQ will entertain guests with their own brand of fusion sounds. Beautiful interactive brand spaces and boutique stands all add to the allure of the event.

At the swanky Fusion Bar 'Fynbos', winner of the FHM Brandy Cocktail of the Year competition will be served, along with other taste-shaping cocktails all recognising brandy's extraordinary versatility. Also making an appearance is the winner of the Collison's Cosmo Cocktail competition.

The exciting festival format will also see high-end lifestyle brands such as Aston Martin, Nespresso and BMW Motorrad rubbing shoulders with famous brandy houses and artisanal estate brandies.

The perfect launch pad for new products, speculation is rife regarding who will try and eclipse the launch of Van Ryn's 30 Year Old AU.RA, which was the talk of the town at last year's event. New small artisanal brandy producers have come on board with their handmade liquid gold up for nosing and tasting in the Potstill Lounge.

With the event being both social happening and learning experience, brandy enthusiasts can join in the popular master classes. To book your slot, visit from 1 June.

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 brandy's are the most revered internationally and highly respected by connoisseurs across the globe.

The Walk of Fame will spotlight South African brandy's world domination, bringing home the Worldwide Best Brandy trophy no fewer than 15 times, including the past six years in succession at the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC).

At the 'shop-at-show' retail space visitors will be able to buy brandies at special festival prices.

The SA Brandy Foundation is a member of ARA. Fine Brandy Fusion supports moderate and responsible enjoyment of brandy. Corporate Cab services are available.
