Great News for brandy fans in Cape Town and Johannesburg! Fine Brandy Fusion will be held in Cape Town on the 9th and 10th of May and in Johannesburg from the 26th to the 28th of June 2013!
This year Fine Brandy Fusion makes it debut in the Western Cape and promises to amaze the people of Gauteng for the 6th year in a row. This vibrant event (which was previously known as the Fine Brandy Festival) showcases the array of delightful fusions that are used to create unique South African brandies and the fusions of cultures and styles it celebrates. The Cape Town event is held at the Cape Town International Convention Center and the Johannesburg event is held at the Sandton Convention Center.
Fine Brandy Fusion is part social happening, part learning experience and reflects both the refined and the fun side of Brandy. The organizers are quite excited to host the first Cape Town edition of this event. They can now host a highly successful event in Cape Town a stones throw from the spot where brandy was first distilled on a ship docked in Table Bay harbour 341 years ago. Local brandy aficionados no longer have to fly to Johannesburg to join the magnificent showcase of South Africa’s finest.
Visitors to both Fine Brandy Fusion events will have lots to see and lots to do. These glamorous events are ideal for the young and trendy, sophisticates and connoisseurs eager to explore South Africa’s internationally admired brandy industry. This year’s even will see brand new concepts and a return of popular highlights. You can expect anything from trend-forward cocktails to the age-old craft of barrel-making.
There will also be Burlesque dancers, beautiful interactive brand spaces and boutique stands. There will also be a Walk of Fame which will spotlight South African brandies’ world domination, bringing home the Worldwide Best Brandy trophy 15 times (six years in succession at the International Wine & Spirits Competition).
Tickets cost R195 for the Johannesburg event and R175 for the Cape Town event. This price includes a brandy glass and Nespresso vouchers. Tickets are available from Computicket or at the door. Please note that no visitors under the age of 18 are allowed.
