A quick tour and one gets to see the distilling process; the 58 holding tanks capable of holding 8000 litres of brandy and the maturation barrels. There is a lot of brandy being made but when it comes to tasting not even a capful each. Brandy pairing is with chocolate truffles, wors or fudge - different prices up to R90... More

We had such fun visiting this distillery. We unfortunately missed the actual distillery tour but were offered a Brandy tasting. It was excellent and pairing Brandy with different fudge was a new adventure. Would advise anyone visiting Robertson area to stop off at Klipdrift and experience this!

The tour was short and the process not very well explained. Four brandies were in the tasting and offered to be matched against various alternatives - we chose sausage! The product could have been better promoted.

Visited for a simple brandy tasting. Very friendly greeting with a welcome drink to start. Tranquil oasis of a garden even though beside the main road in Robertson. Great and informative explanation (non-technical) of the different products along with tasting - and drinking - advice. Has widened our understanding and enjoyment of the product. Will definitely visit again next time... More

We were late arrivals, probably the last guests before closing. The last tour (2:30 pm) had been long over. Nevertheless, we were warmly welcomed, including a brandy-ginger ale drink. The tasting came along with loads of great information and advice.

We had a little dog with us so sat outside in a small neat garden. Sweet waitress, very small and simple menu but food was excellent! Well presented and very tasty . Will definitely be returning, and often.

It has become a sort of tradition now that every time I visit this area in South Africa, we go to the Klipdrift distillery to have a hamburger. As usual, our visit wasn't for naught as the hamburgers are still great! The patties are flambe'd in brandy! It just makes the taste so different! Of course we tasted some brandy... More
