Pekoe Tea Liqueur
Pekoe is crafted at a family-owned distillery, located in Schiedam, The Netherlands, which has been producing spirits since 1777. For over seven generations the family dedicated their lives to building a business based on honesty and quality. The Dutch Geneva distillery from back then has developed into a global company, offering a wide, modern range of spirits throughout the world.
The brand has been created by Robert Schinkel – a Global Tea Ambassador, a Tea Sommelier, a Tea & Food pairing pioneer, a Trendsetter & Trendspotter in tea, a winner of international cocktail competitions who has created over 500 tea-based recipes and did a Beverage & Hospitality training program in over 60 countries. While visiting numerous bar around the globe, he finally came up with idea of tea liqueur, which he found missing in the bartending scene.
Mr Schinkel selected the finest hand-picked tea from Dilmah’s tea gardens in Sri Lanka to form the base of the liqueur. The world’s finest tea combined with over 225 years of distilling experience has resulted in a tea liqueur with a smooth sweetness and a touch of bitterness that will please the palette in a way that is unique. The name „Pekoe” [pek-ko] means a high quality black tea made from young leaves.
