Van Ryn''s
Spring's the thing at Van Ryn's. It's lighter, brighter and time for some spring-style palate pampering with fresh, lively tastes at Van Ryn's, the luxury brandy distillery near Stellenbosch.

The brandy cocktail menu has set the dial to deluxe, so pop in for the new season's selection and some spoiling. There's a retro-nod at the cola tonic, given a brilliant brandy makeover or a peachy brandy and juice mix, swizzled with vanilla and a sprig of mint.

Cocktails change every month but all year round, Van Ryn's offers its signature Angel's Share, a seductive, celestial indulgence.

Prices range from R20 to R35 per cocktail.

Drinks can be sipped and savoured on plush couches in the distillery's tasting area or in the lovely lavender, gaura and rose garden under shady umbrellas.

Mondays to Fridays: 09:00 – 17:00

Saturdays and public holidays: 09:00 – 16:00

Sundays: 11:00 – 16:00 (tastings only, no tours) (October to April)
