There are two basic types of South African Brandy. They are:

- Vintage brandy which is a blend of a minimum 30% of pot still brandy (aged a minimum 3 years) and a maximum of 70% of continous still product (aged a minimum of 8 years). In addition there is a limit on the size of the oak casks using for the ageing.

- Pot still brandy must contain at least 90% distillate from a pot still. The rest is reserved for additives and distilled water. Minimum ageing is 3 years.

The South African brandies are characterized by a very rich aromas and high quality.
