Fusion Brandy Festival at the CTICC

The aroma route, a passage lined with giant brandy balloons, each of which contained a liquid with an aroma – fruit, herbs, nuts, etc., to help visitors identify aromas they would find in the different brandies
 plenty of places to sit and discuss the delights of the show
 Cognac Bisquit, which now belongs to Distell
 Beautiful and affordable glassware from Bohemia
 KWV cocktails
 and fashion statements
Rare and unusual cognac from Jean Grosperrin

 sexy cars
 and sexy musicians
 Ellen Raubenheimer, GetIt! editor and Coenie Visser of Oak and Vigne in Greyton 
Two of our favourite young ladies: Lauren Cohen and Roxane Laker
Sloppy, disinterested staff at the food counter
Beef Stroganoff
and a chocolate brownie, just dumped!

the original Backsberg potstill

with tasting room manager Danwin James on hand to talk about it
The police were there for the politicians at the Economic Forum, not to help the brandy lovers get home
All John, the family driver, could do was sniff, but he took a sample home to enjoy!
