Bayede XO Cape Brandy
Bayede! – hail the king! This is the traditional greeting reserved exclusively for the king of the
Zulu nation. Shouts of “Wena Wendlovu!” follow the salute, honouring the king by likening
him to the mighty African Elephant.
This rare Cape Brandy is crafted by appointment to His Majesty, King Goodwill Zwelithini
Double-distilled in copper stills from Chenin Blanc and Colombard base wines.
A combination of French and American oak barrels. The blend consists of brandies ranging
from 10 – 14 years in age.
Delicate peach and apricot notes delight the nose, with deeper layers showing cloves and curry
leaf. Exceptionally smooth on the palate with a lingering aftertaste of vanilla and honey. A rare
and surprising spirit. 38% ABV.
