KAAPSE LIQUEURS…SOUTH AFRICA (100% local and natural)
See Contact Details Below
Kaapse Liqueurs is a proudly South African company distributing liqueurs manufactured from locally sourced produce. All the ingredients are 100% South African, natural and indigenous to the area.
Carol Knolles Mills (Green) is the daughter of E.K. Green the 6th. He in turn was a direct descendent of the first E.K. Green, the founder of the E.K Green Castle Wine and Brandy Company. This once-thriving local business dates back to 1814.
A South African producer, wholesaler and retailer, the E.K Green Castle Wine and Brandy Company spanned a number of generations. It was awarded 54 gold and silver medals at the Paris exhibition of 1867. Similarly successful exhibitions took place all over the world, such as Chicago (1893) and Philadelphia (1876), where more medals were received.
A Distell subsidiary
E.K Green merged with Van Ryn Wine & Spirits and Henry C. Collison to form SA Distilleries in 1902. In 1970, Oude Meester Cellars and South African Distilleries performed another merger, creating what is now known as Distell. Castle Wine and E.K Green Limited are now subsidiaries of the Distell Group.
The company’s head office was established in 1905 in Somerset Road, Green Point, where it now forms part of the trendy Cape Quarter. (The E.K. Green signage on the facade has thankfully been preserved.)
Whether motivated by this impressive family heritage or simply fulfilling her personal ambition, Carol passionately pursues her liqueur business and continually strives for South African quality and excellence.
100% local and natural
These artisan liqueurs have been carefully hand-crafted, with attention to wholesome natural processes and ingredients, and then packaged to provide a sense of extraordinary occasion. No artificial additives, colorants’ or preservatives are added to the liqueurs. Always proudly South African, the company aims to provide customers with an indulgent, delicious and 100% local experience.
Kaapse Limoncello, the first local liqueur passionately perfected by Carol Mills, is the flagship liqueur of the Kaapse Liqueurs fleet. A 100% natural South African product, this fragrant lemon liqueur is made exclusively with fresh, healthy lemon zest oils and has a clear, lively color. Served chilled, it is tantalizingly refreshing.
Kaapse Buchu Limoncello is made with South African lemon rind oils infused with Buchu often referred to as the “miracle herb”, due to the medicinal properties of its oil. Kaapse Buchu Limoncello won a Gold Medal at the 2016 International Wine and Spirits Awards!
Kaapse Pittekou Liqueur is carefully hand-crafted using only pure granadilla pulp from the purple granadilla (passiflora edulis), giving it a distinctive fresh tartness. A 100% natural South African product, Kaapse Pittekou won a Gold Medal at the 2016 International Michelangelo Wine and Spirits Awards!
Kaapse Honeybush is a local liqueur with a uniquely South African herbal tea taste. The unique flavor is derived from the honeybush, an indigenous plant well known for its medicinal properties. Kaapse Honeybush Liqueur was a Gold Medal winner at the 2016 International Michelangelo Wine and Spirits Awards!
Kaapse Strawberry is a meticulously crafted traditional liqueur, which uses only pure strawberry pulp from locally cultivated produce. The local fruit is known for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture and perfect balance of sweetness to acidity – it’s also packed with healthy antioxidants!
Kaapse Buchu Gin is a bespoke, hand-crafted local gin infused with Buchu “a plant often referred to as the miracle herb”, due to the medicinal properties of its oil. The deliciously unique Kaapse Buchu Gin was a Silver Medalist at the 2016 International Michelangelo Wine and Spirits Awards. A master distillerâ€™s devotion.
Absolutely divine! We have tasted Kaapse Limoncello and Kaapse Pittekou, both delicious. What a shame we won’t be able to buy it in Scotland when we go home but we will certainly be stocking up again next year when we come back.
