Niepoort is an independent family business since 1842. Through five generation the business has passed successfully from one Niepoort to the next Niepoort and in most cases older and younger generation worked side by side for a long period. A brick-red appearance with medium depth and a light orange rim. On the nose a slightly smoky/vanilla aroma from the very old seasoned pipes casks follows through with aromas of marmalade, raisins and dried apricots. Medium-bodied on the palate, with a mellow lengthy spirit-driven finish.
