NOT YOUR NANNA'S BRANDY
Old chardonnay barrels don’t die but some go to heaven, maturing this elixir that blasts brandy off its doily and into the present millennium. Toasty oak unites single and double pot distillation characters of vanilla, honey and apricot. Mix with: irony.
Two years in a mix of French and American oak barrels, mostly ex-chardonnay, impart seductively rich colour, smoothness and length to this new generation brandy. But we wanted to give you more, and herein lies the magic of blending. With the addition of single copper pot distilled portions we’ve added an unexpected lifted brightness.

JO SPARGO (SA)
I have lived and worked in Adelaide all my adult life. I’ve travelled the world and seen how the other half live and yes, there are a few other places I think I could call home, but this little city fits me well. I studied art and design and after some life experience got into advertising which is where many designers end up. Lucky for me every job I’ve had has been better than the last in some way or another and I have been able to learn and grow with every new experience, both as a designer and as a person. I like to work and I don’t mind if it is fast and furious, long hours or mind-bending concepts. I enjoy art and design and am increasingly drawn into illustration (pun intended). I have also been known to paint and draw for fun too.
