Pasch du Plooy

A good sauce is one of the fundamentals of cooking

De Vry Distillery

Production always starts with the best local grain, and farm fresh ingredients. This philosophy allows De Vry the freedom to create spirits that play with local flavours and carry a sense of character. Free State sorghum is used to create an "all grain base"; this allows for a taste unique and differentiated from our competitors. Our grain goes through a process of milling, mashing, and fermentation and we use carefully curated yeast strains to create and complement the different flavours. Free from the shackles of convention, we at De Vry offer four ranges each distinct in flavour.


If you are an artisan and anything Epicurious interests you, it extends to everything aqua. The way a substance changes when exposed to water, sugar melts or crystallises at certain temperatures. The sweet elixir tapped from the humble grape or grain or kernel. De Vry Distillery is the proud home of Pasch and his two brothers. Here you will find everything from Rum to Vodka to some Gin in between. Pop into their webpage for a taste of their unique local products or to order online.

De Vry Distillery was founded on a solid foundation of love for our country and culture. As a proudly local brand, we use South African flavours to create unique quality products. Housed in an old milking shed, right in the heart of the Free State - an area renowned for sorghum cultivation - we're inspired and influenced by our location.
