Description

Boplaas’ distilling heritage dates back to 1880, when current owner, Carel Nel’s great-great grandfather, Daniel Nel, exported his first consignment of fine Boplaas Brandy to England. In those days they transported the barrels of brandy by ox wagon to Worcester and from there to Cape Town by train and then by ship to London.

Boplaas also became the first cellar to release an Estate Brandy in 1994 after the change in legislation in 1989.

“Our angel’s share is very high with the dry weather we have. The angels are very thirsty and every night they have a party in our brandy cellar, but this helps us produce rich brandies.”Carel Nel – cellar master/ owner is a member of the prestigious Cape Winemaker’s Guild and is the only member to produces a brandy worthy enough for the annual
Guild Auction.

TASTING NOTES:

The five years in old Limousin casks and old Portuguese pipes, climatic conditions of the Klein Karoo, and the insatiable thirst of the local angels have created a world-class blended brandy. This beautiful and deep golden-coloured brandy delights with vanilla and dried-fruit flavours on a medium-bodied palate.
