Intercontinental Double Gold for Tokara XO Potstill Brandy

You are currently viewing Intercontinental Double Gold for Tokara XO Potstill Brandy

Tokora’s masterly crafted XO Potstill Brandy excelled as a Cape Brandy of distinction earning Double Gold at the Intercontinental Spirits Challenge 2023. The luxurious Tokara XO Potstill Brandy was singled out among the best of the best Cap Brandies for its depth of flavour, complexity and unparalleled quality at the African leg of this Intercontinental competition.

Crafted from Stellenbosch Chenin blanc grapes, the brandy is double distilled in the age-old Cognac tradition and matured in individual French Limousin oak casks for a minimum of ten and up to 17 years. The aromas are beautifully complex with notes of caramel, cinnamon and nutmeg amplified by dried fig, apricot and a signature hint of raspberry. Floral aromas flourish with jasmine and orange blossom. Unctuous and complex with great depth of character, the palate delivers rich flavours that are expertly balanced and carried by a silky texture.

“As a result of slow, prolonged barrel ageing in predominantly older Limousin barrels, the aromas and flavours are more concentrated allowing the brandy to develop its distinctive character, fine length and depth of aftertaste,” explains Tokara winemaker Stuart Botha.   

Producing a refined brandy of this calibre in the age-old Cognac tradition has been the intention of GT and Anne-Marie Ferreira ever since they set their sights on making world class wines at Tokara over two decades ago.  The ultimate choice of aficionados, Tokara XO Potstill Brandy comes in an elegant decanter presented in a beautifully designed case. This world class XO brandy is available at the Tokara Tasting Lounge and selected purveyors of fine wines at a cellar door price of R1 100.
