For those of you who did not know, the Fine Brandy Fusion event kicks off tomorrow in Johannesburg at the Sandton International Convention Center. The event is marking its fifth anniversary with a major rebranding. The vibrant Fine Brandy Fusion (previously known as the Fine Brandy Festival) hints at the array of delightful fusions used to create our unique brandies as well as the fusions of cultures and styles it celebrates. The event is South Africa’s top trend-creating drinks and will be on from the 27th to the 29th of June 2012.
This all started out as a small, dedicated industry event but has evolved into the ultimate showcase of this luxury product and the lifestyle surrounding it. The young and trendy, sophisticates and connoisseurs are tuning in to the modern image of brandy and relishing the chance to explore South Africa’s internationally admired brandy industry at this über-glamorous annual event. Hitting the right vibe as part social happening, part learning experience, this keystone event reflects brandy’s refined and its fun side. This exciting format will see high-end lifestyle brands, music and brandy-loving food fuse with famous brandy houses and artisanal estate brandies.
This year’s Fine Brandy Fusion highlights the incredible run of accolades earned by local brandies at the International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) over the last three decades. This year there will be an IWSC stand showcasing an independent view on South Africa’s performance on the world stage in comparison to other contenders. Festival guests can get confirmation why no fewer than 13 local brandies have won the Worldwide Best Brandy trophy, including the past five years in succession.
Fine Brandy Fusion will run from 5 PM to 9 PM on the 3 days. No entry will be allowed after 8:30 PM. Tickets cost R195 per person and includes a brandy glass, beverage vouchers and a complimentary Nespresso voucher. Tickets available from Computicket or at the door. No visitors under 18 years will be allowed.
