Oude Molen’s handcrafted XO wins gold

| Wine and liquor

Oude Molen’s XO new handcrafted premium Cape brandy was awarded gold at the recent 2016 Global Spirits Masters in the Brandy Masters category, and was the only South African distiller to win gold in the competition.

In addition, Oude Molen’s premium Joseph Barry VS, VSOP and XO Cape brandies won silver medals in the competition.

The Global Spirits Masters is a blind-tasting competition and uses only independent judges, making it one of the most impartial spirits competitions. Distillers and bottlers from across the globe enter across a variety of categories.

André Simonis, MD of the Oude Molen distillery, says that the global impact of winning this type of award is great for business.
