Veritas Brandy judging

Judging of South African brandies took place at the Nederburg auction complex in Paarl on 12 September. The results will be announced at a gala banquet on October 8th at the Cape Town International Convention Centre.

The South African brandy industry will show its mettle at Veritas for the 2nd year running, with 36 brandies across the various categories (standard, vintage and pot still) competing for coveted double gold, gold, silver or bronze medals. Participation in Veritas provides an important avenue to advocate the consistent outstanding quality of South African brandy, distilled according to arguably the most stringent regulations in the world. Being part of Veritas also illustrates the natural link between wine and brandy, both noble products of the grape.
