Rust en Vrede Estate 12 Year Old Potstill Brandy
When Jean Engelbrecht opened the Rust en Vrede Restaurant with David Higgs in 2007, his ideas of food and wine began to evolve. The idea of a complete dining experience took root in his mind, and his experiences at top restaurants around the world always concluded with a digestif Cognac. Thus inspired, the idea of a Rust en Vrede Potstill Brandy was born. Conceived as a digestif, the Rust en Vrede Estate Potstill Brandy was created to be enjoyed after dinner, with good company.
The new wine spirit is aged at full strength in 300L French oak barrels previously used for maturing Rust en Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon. Aging for a minimum of 12 years takes place in barrel, with the oldest component for this first release being 15 years old.
