South Africa’s finest brandies, a new brandy App, trend-forward brandy cocktails, MC Proverb turning up the vibe, internationally renowned mixologists shaking it up and an aerial artist taking to the sky.
Perfectly timed to take the edge off the winter chill, and marking its fifth anniversary with a major rebranding the vibrant Fine Brandy Fusion (previously the Fine Brandy Festival) hints at the array of delightful possibilities when our unique brandies merge with a fusion of cultures and styles. The event is presented by the South African Brandy Foundation.
Part social happening, part learning experience, this keystone event reflects brandy's refined and its fun side. This exciting format will see high-end lifestyle brands, music and brandy-loving food fuse with famous brandy houses and artisanal estate brandies.

This year's Fine Brandy Fusion highlights the incredible run of accolades earned by local brandies at the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) over the past three decades. Festival guests can get confirmation why no fewer than 13 local brandies have won the Worldwide Best Brandy trophy, including the past five years in succession.

Brandy has also found its mojo in the modern mixing of taste-shaping cocktails recognising brandy's extraordinary versatility. Explore these trend-forward concoctions at the Fusion Bar and discover what fun can be had with South African brandy.

The overwhelming success of the tutored tasting and master classes initiated last year sees the further expansion of the programme, under the auspices of Dave Hughes, a master distiller and international wine and spirits judge.

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