Philosophy of Pekoe


Pekoe : [pek-ko] a high quality black tea made from young leaves.

In the tea industry, tea leaf grading is the process of evaluating products based on the quality and condition of the tea leaves themselves. Pekoe stands for the large leaf size producing most subtle and elegant infusions.

Robert Schinkel selected the finest hand-picked tea from Dilmah’s tea gardens in Sri Lanka to form the base of the first true tea 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.
