This week KWV was honoured with the 2018 trophy for the Brandy Producer of the Year at the International Spirit Challenge (ISC) at a ceremony held in London.

The ISC is regarded as the most respected and sought after in the drinks industry, due to the stringent nature of the judging process. 

It's the third time KWV’s Master Distiller, Pieter de Bod, has been honoured with this coveted Producer’s Award. 

It was a good week for the team — KWV Brandy had secured an impressive three gold medals for the KWV 10-Year-Old Potstill Brandy, KWV 12-Year-Old Barrel Select Brandy and the KWV 20-Year-Old XO Brandy at the same challenge.

“It is an incredible honour to win the Trophy for the Brandy Producer of the Year for the third time....this illustrates KWV’s ability to produce brandy of a consistent, trusted quality, and our ability to make a brandy that is not only appreciated locally – but revered globally. My team of distillers and I are fully committed to continue making Brandies of award-winning quality,” says De Bod.
