Our distillery in the Elgin Valley is a place of absolute balance. Wines are dashed from the vineyards and distilled immediately to preserve the fruity freshness. In our maturation cellars, time stands still as the spirit rests for years and years and years…

While we wait for our brandies reach perfection, we like having folks pop around and we’d like to welcome you to Oude Molen. It’s something completely different, and the Elgin Valley is a great day out.
