The 10-year old Uitkyk Grand Reserve pot still brandy is distilled and matured on the historic Stellenbosch wine estate dating back to 1712. Located on the slopes of the Simonsberg with sweeping views across the Cape Peninsula towards Table Mountain, Uitkyk is not only famous for its brandy, but also for its magnificent Cape homestead.
The wine was double distilled in special 2000 litre pot stills, heated over an open flame. After distillation, the young brandy was matured on the estate for 10 years in 300 litre oak casks, the first 9 months in new casks and thereafter in third-fill casks. All the components are taken out of barrel after ten years and then matured in tank until bottling.
