Louiesenhof was part of the Koopmanskloof Estate until 1993. Going through the archives I found that Brandy has been distilled at Koopmanskloof since the early 1920s, therefore distilling my own brandy was a lifelong ambition, rekindling this old family tradition. The first batch of Brandy we produced was done in conjunction with the research station in Stellenbosch. Ugni Blanc and Colombar grapes were used for this brandy. During 1994, I received an old copper still from a friend of mine in Mariental – Namibia. His late father imported this potstill during 1933 from Stuttgart in Germany. This makes it very special to me as I studied in Stuttgart.
I believe we produced a unique style of brandy with this 131-liter kettle, built in 1930.
