Now they have also won even more accolades in New York. With such international acclaim, it’s easy to forget that KWV calls Paarl home.

In the South African class, KWV won ‘Brandy of the Year’ in three categories: the 20-Year-Old Potstill Brandy was named ’20 Year Brandy of the Year’, Laborie Alambic was named ‘5 Year Brandy of the Year’ and Imoya was named ‘3 Year Brandy of the Year’. KWV also secured in International Gold Medal for its 20-Year-Old Potstill Brandy and an International Silver Medal for is 15-Year-Old Potstill brandy.
KWV Master Distiller, Pieter de Bod, says:
‘This quality is measured per international standards – even against the best Cognac producers – and, by virtue of its constant brilliant performance in the past five years, KWV has grown into a trusted brand that delivers reliable, high-quality enjoyment,’ added De Bod.
