TIDY VINTAGE JOHN DE KUYPER & SON ROTTERDAM GIN BOTTLE

Schiedam 1911. Smoke billows from the chimneys of the numerous distilleries & settles on walls & streets.

The tall grain mills tower above a blackened & rainy city. Whilst the Golden Age of the gin-producing city of Schiedam comes to an end, heavy steam engines drive long piles into the ground on the Buitenhavenweg to form the foundation of what will become the ultramodern business premises of the De Kuyper family.

The De Kuyper family has been involved in the Dutch gin industry since as far back as 1695.

Petrus de Kuyper took the first step by producing gin barrels at his cooperage in Horst.

His third son, Jan de Kuyper, took it one step further by opening a distillery in Schiedam.

Jan’s sons, Johannes and Pieter, succeeded in taking over a large distillery in Rotterdam & rapidly became the biggest distillers in the city
The business continued to expand.

Exports to the United Kingdom, Canada & distant overseas markets increased. By combining forces, the De Kuyper family successfully steered the family business through good times & several crises.

The business survived the French-Dutch wars, Napoleon’s ban on exports, the US Prohibition, the First World War, the Depression & the Second World War.

Driven by entrepreneurial spirit, a love for the distilled product & close family ties. Today the 11th generation of the De Kuyper family stands at the helm of a strong global company, ready for many more centuries of De Kuyper.
