It's taken a while, but the De Kuyper brand is now officially available in South Africa, albeit in only three flavours to begin with. When you consider that the company is the 9th oldest family business in the Netherlands, having been established in 1695, it's safe to say that it's about time!
The world's largest producer of cocktail liqueurs, De Kuyper is a massive brand in the world of mixology. It's come along way since Petrus de Kuyper took the first step over 300 years ago by producing gin barrels at his cooperage in Horst, the Netherlands. His third son, Jan de Kuyper, took it one step further by opening a distillery in Schiedam, and Jan's sons, Johannes and Pieter, succeeded in taking over a large distillery in Rotterdam and rapidly became the biggest distillers in the city.
Over the years the country expanded into foreign markets, withstanding such global crises as the French-Dutch wars, Napoleon's ban on exports, the US Prohibition, the First World War, the Depression and the Second World War. Today the business has diversified into making various products, and none have become more synonymous with the De Kuyper name than the range of spirits and liqueurs.
