The stoppers and trims on two newly-released luxury St Agnes
brandies make lavish use of gold. They are South Australian winemaker
and distiller Angove's tilt at the luxury spirits market, a market that
has exploded in recent years.
The family-owned, Renmark-based company has
released two extraordinary brandies: XO Imperial at $210 a bottle, and
XO Grand Reserve at $765. These set new benchmarks for Australian
spirits in both price and packaging.
