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 Triple Sec is an orange liqueur and one of the classics from the huge line of De Kuyper liqueurs. They correctly acknowledge it as "the essential ingredient in almost any margarita."

Not disgusting, but not very good. An artificial orange flavor, too much sweet finished with a somewhat rough not-so-neutral spirits taste. Kinda makes Cointreau seem worth the price. But there are much better triple secs available for a bit more money than this, yet less than Cointreau. I wouldn't turn down a margarita with this in it, but I'd try to see if there was something better available.

We've all heard the term "you get what you pay for." Well, at $3.99, I had the bar set pretty low and this garbage was still a huge disappointment. I've never had a spirit that tasted this artificial. Bad in a sidecar and margarita. I couldn't even bury it in a Long Island Iced Tea without it ruining the drink. Yes, Cointreau and Grand Marnier are TEN times the price, but this stuff is completely useless. Please stay away.

You can pay more for triple sec, but why would you? Inexpensive, easily found, great tasting mixer.
