Proof66 Notes

De Kuyper Works is an international company that claims family ownership and sales of 50,000,000 bottles all in liqueurs. The origins were in 1695 with the marriage of Petrus De Kuyper and Anna Custers who began their business in making wooden casks for beer transportation (perhaps giving rise to the profession of "cooper" in the English). The company itself began in 1752 when Jan De Kuyper (the third son) purchased a distillery in Scheidam. The 1800s saw the rise of the "gin craze" and the company mainly sold gin exports, getting into the liqueur business in the 1920s but at that time launching 20 different flavors. They opened facilities in Canada and New Jersey eventually ceding the gin market and concentrating in liqueurs. The company remains 100% family owned to this day through 11 generations of management.

Today, De Kuper offers a bewildering and evolving line of flavored liqueurs that are common fare in every liquor establishment in over 100 different countries. Please note--currently, De Kuyper has not submitted many liqueurs for judging and at this time (September, 2009) we have very few of the hundreds of liqueurs listed

De Kuyper Blue Curacao is an orange/citrus liqueur classically presented in a brilliant blue and associated with the original Curacao island recipe.

On the cheap side of things. Taste is typical of DeKuyper: boozy. The orange isn't too strong, like it should somewhat be.

There is a reason why so many bars stock Dekuyper brand liqueurs. Great taste. Great price. Great mixer.

This stuff is certainly very cheap, but there are some really nice bottles of curacao out there if you're willing to spend a little time looking around. If it's important that it be blue, just get one of the nicer bottles and then add a drop of coloring to the cocktail. Though if you're making a blue drink, you might not really care about quality.
