De Kuyper is perhaps best known for its cherry brandy liqueur and this new small batch limited edition cherry brandy is packaged in a bottle inspired by the original art deco style of De Kuyper’s cherry brandy bottle in the 1920s.
This limited production cherry brandy is made from Maraska cherries and three other cherry varieties macerated in Grand Champagne XO cognac. It is worth noting that the bottle says, “Settle for nothing less. Due to the natural process of extraction some sediment may occur.”
Review and Tasting

Clear, dark brick red.
Black forest gateaux with subtle almond and marzipan. Faint dark chocolate.
Rich, velvety, round and most satisfying. While sweet, cognac notes add complexity and help balance this huge liqueur.
More almond notes emerge early in the long rich, fruity, warming finish.
Experiencing this liqueur is like working your way down through a layered cake and you will want seconds.
Bottle Size: 700 ml
Closure: Natural cork stopper
