Sugarbird is best known for its award-winning gin, with beautiful presentation and a unique, fearless drive towards collaboration with other brands, and now the company has announced its venture into the world of Brandy!
South African Brandy producers make some of the best Cognac style Brandy in the world and have a huge number of international trophies and medals to prove it. Sugarbird has now joined this proud heritage and other master distillers to create a unique 14 year potstilled Brandy.
The distillate, from Chenin Blanc and Colombar grapes has, uniquely, been matured in small, French, oak casks for the full 14 years before trickle-filtering through Honeybush and other Cape botanicals. The result is a rich, smooth potstill Brandy with notes of creamy vanilla, dark chocolate and hints of sweet stewed prunes. The Cape botanicals and honeybush offer a soft tropical note which adds to a long smooth finish.
It is presented in a quality heavy glass bottle, strikingly labelled, with understated elegance. With this XO Brandy, Sugarbird hopes to pay tribute to our unique South African distilling traditions, while proudly celebrating our vibrant and diverse country.
