De Kuyper Royal Distillers (1695) is a privately held Dutch company in the business of manufacturing and marketing distilled spirits and liqueurs.
The company started by Petrus De Kuyper as a manufacturer of barrels and casks used in the transportation of spirits and beer. In 1966, De Kuyper sold the right to manufacture and market their brands in the United States to Jim Beam Brands under a perpetual agreement. American consumers know the brand as John De Kuyper & Son, which makes liqueurs such as Triple Sec and various flavours of Schnapps such as Pucker, generally for consumption in sweet cocktails or shots.
In 1995, on the occasion of its 300th anniversary, the company received the title "Royal" from Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. This led to the company changing its name from Johannes de Kuyper & Zoon to De Kuyper Royal Distillers. In the same year, Erven Warnink - the leading producer of advocaat and cream liqueurs – was taken over by De Kuyper Royal Distillers.
