Van Ryn’s Distillery, the luxury home of South Africa’s flagship name in brandy, has recently been issued with a glowing report by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa for the outstanding quality experience it offers visitors, its service, attention to detail and superb décor.
The five-star WiFi venue, close to Stellenbosch, on the banks of the Eerste River, is set back from the highway in a secluded chateau-like complex bordered by a formal garden.
In addition to brandy tours, cheese and charcuterie platters, and a selection of brandy and confection, the distillery offers premium, prestige conference and themed team-building facilities.
Options include an exclusively appointed boardroom for up to 18 and a 32-seater conference room. Both include AV and other presentation equipment. Catering is also provided.
The distillery is also able to host dinner and cocktail parties, as well as launches and exhibitions and can accommodate up to 100. One of its special features in a whodunnit murder mystery event, where guests dressed to the nines, have to find the perpetrator of a society murder, by following a set of clues. It is popular for team building initiatives, as well as for birthdays and anniversaries.
