All about De Kuyper distillery
De Kuyper Royal Distillers has been making Spirits, Liqueurs, Creams, and Bitters for more than 320 years.
Based in Schiedam in The Netherlands,
the birthplace of Jenever,
De Kuyper’s range makes it the world’s largest producer of cocktail Liqueurs. In 1752, the company produced solely Gin and Jenever.
Its location in Schiedam meant it was close to the port, whereby exotic herbs, spices, and botanicals came into the country and were quickly put to use in the Spirits production business. In the 1970s, Liqueurs overtook Gin in De Kuyper’s product portfolio.
Today, De Kuyper boasts 36 Liqueurs, as well as Brandies, Advocaats, and Bitters. De Kuyper Royal Distillers is also the owner of a number of smaller distilleries,
such as Rutte,
another Schiedam-based distillery which produces a range of Gins.
