Kaapse Liqueurs  

Artisan, Local and Natural

The driving force behind the company is the passion, hard work and expertise of Cape Town born and bred Carol Mills. It is through her efforts that the liqueurs have remained artisan, local and natural.

Based in the Western Cape, the business has been built on the very popular “market industry” which has taken off in the area. The casual nature of this phenomenon has allowed for extensive interaction with customers and generated very positive reaction and feedback.

Traditional liqueurs like Kaapse Liqueurs can enhance lifestyles, forming part of the celebration of relationships, get-togethers and festive community eating. Food pairings are a passion of the brands and the sensory experiences which can be created with the liqueurs are endless.

Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards


The Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards was established in 1997 to offer South African producers the opportunity of having their wines adjudicated locally by a highly experienced and respected panel of professionals from around the globe. Our primary objective was – and to a great extent still remains – to support local wine and spirits producers who are targeting international markets for exports and, through our international judges, are able to determine whether their wines will be well received both abroad and locally.


Since 2003 the competition has received an increasing number of entries from international wine producers; 2003 marked the start of a new era for the competition when the Michelangelo International Wine Awards moved to Stellenbosch, the main wine producing area of South Africa. During that year the organizer’s introduced the first of a number of trophies, namely the Grand Prix trophy for the top scoring wine, the Pinotage trophy and a trophy for the best Garagiste (Boutique) wine entered into the competition.


Now, in its 25th year, the competition remains unique in South Africa, in that all judges are hand-picked wine experts, representing all seven continents. Since the start of the competition in 1997, more than 170 different judges from 46 countries (more recently including Russia, Romania and China) have served on the panel. All entries are judged blind by panels of 5 or 6 judges, using the 100-point international recognized OIV judging system.
