One of South Africa’s leading craft brandy distilleries owes its heritage to the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder, Joseph Barry. Producing handcrafted Cape Brandy since 1941, each sip is a dedication to his maverick ways and ongoing quest for perfection.
Each handcrafted Cape Brandy in the Joseph Barry range takes something a little different from the rugged Klein Karoo terroir and turns it into the exceptional.
As you enter the small town hub of artisan creativity that is Barrydale, you are greeted by the sight of Barrydale Cellars, its storage tanks standing tall and proud against the startling Karoo backdrop. The Cellars boast a state of the art tasting room, complete with craft brewery, and a magnificent shiny antique copper potstill still used to this day to produce the legendary Joseph Barry Cape Brandy.
Our deluxe Cape Brandy Experience includes a tutored tasting and bespoke chocolate pairing, with a distillery tour.
