To celebrate our 100th year, KWV’s Master Blender created this very special blend, a brandy that truly transcends time. Behind the award-winning KWV label, you will taste and experience a piece of South African history. It all began in 1918 with the first-ever brandy. Two large potstills were used to distill what has become known as KWV’s legendary 1926 vintage.

Some of this vintage bottled 92yrs ago, is resting in this very bottle.

Nearly two decades later, KWV experienced another historic moment – albeit catastrophic. In 1942, a fire devastated much of KWV’s Stellenbosch cellars and only one brandy cask remained. Brandy from this very special cask has been added to craft this superb bottle of brandy.

Our Centenary Potstill Brandy reflects the richness of KWV’s heritage as pioneers of South African spirits and contains some of our country’s oldest brandies, including some of that very special brandy filled 92 years ago. It is a true tribute to South Africa and KWV’s brandy heritage and excellence, the most special South African brandy you could possibly find.

This rich golden amber brandy, which has an average maturation period of no less than 37 years, has a unique flavour profile of honey, tawny port, vanilla and ground cinnamon. On taste there are expressive notes of caramelized fruit, saffron, tobacco, chocolate and rancio.

KWV recognises the need for sustainable growth in the industry and have committed to donating R20 000 per bottle sold through an authorised dealer to a bursary fund to invest in the education of viti- and viniculture students. Only 100 bottles of this extraordinary blend have been produced for release at selling price of R110,000 per bottle.

In honour of this investment, KWV, in partnership with the five-star Cape Grace hotel, is also offering an exclusive buyers’ package to the first 10 buyers: business-class flights, one-night stay at the premium Cape Grace property situated on a private quay between Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront and the serene yacht marina, VIP chauffeur services, and an exclusive tasting with KWV master distiller Pieter de Bod, during which buyers will have the opportunity to sample KWV’s premium potstill range, including the KWV Nexus and The Centenary.
