Urban Brandy has summer cocktail bases covered
This summer season, South Africa’s premium brandies are leading the charge
when it comes to the creation of the some of the coolest, craftiest and most
refreshing cocktails you’ll savour in some of our cities’ hottest venues.
As delicious and ennobling as the finest award-winning South African brandy
is, this season its junior cousins are certainly proving they have much to
offer at the bar. Unveiling a host of new on-trend cocktail recipes that are

Cocktail lovers can look out for new brandy cocktails that include the likes of

classical KWV 5 Year Old.
