Organic Brandy is made from organic grapes or fruits, in our case, organic grapes from one of the most northern wineries in Perth's Swan Valley Brandy Region. The name brandy
comes from a dutch name Brandewijn, meaning burnt wine.
The craft of making a special brandy is something to be celebrated and appreciated. This is available to any knowledgeable person not just a few.
Our organic brandy is truly sustainable as it is double-distilled using a wood-fired pot still. There are commercial stills that are wood fired, but there use is waining with the availability of gas burners. This hand-made VSOP style brandy is evocative of the brandies made at Cognac in France before natural gas was found in the north sea.
Once the spirit has been collected it is placed in small oak casks in the underground cellar to mature for a minimum of three years (our bottles are labelled with the distillation and the bottling dates). The alcohol content is reduced to 40 percent alcohol by adding only rainwater.
This brandy has complex characters that include caramel, toffee, notes of orange, vanilla, smoky spice and cloves. The current release brandy is not a blend of brandies, but a single vintage. Order your organic brandy from our Organic Shop .

We had to taste test it first. Deliciously smooth. Now we're enjoying it as a warming winter drink. Highly recommend it. And the cake and pud tasted delicious too.
