DeKuyper is founded in 1695 by Petrus De Kuyper as a manufacturer of barrels and casks used in the transportation of spirits and beer. In the 19th century, the company expanded its export business throughout Europe, Great Britain and Canada. In 1911, a new distillery was built in Schiedam and thereafter the production of liqueur began. The invention of the column still in the early 19th century enabled the production of a nearly neutral spirit, the base of most modern cordials and liqueurs. In 1933 DeKuyper® entered the US market and quickly rose to become the leader. Now, with 11th generation patriarch Bob DeKuyper at the head, our brand offers a wide variety of taste combinations and “one pour” solutions for professionals and home bartenders around the globe.
