The origin of Cherry Heering
Cherry Heering was established in 1818 by Peter F. Heering, a young business man trading colonial goods in the Copenhagen Harbour. His former boss’s wife gave him a recipe for Cherry Cordial. He saw the intrinsic potential in this old cherry liqueur recipe, and over time “Cherry Heering” became a staple on the cargo ships leaving to ports all around the world. From Calcutta to Madras, from Shanghai to Jakarta — Cherry Heering quickly gained popularity all around the globe. The word spread and soon everybody wanted a taste of the sophisticated Danish liqueur.
Peter F. Heering has a long tradition of serving royals. He has been supplier to the courts of Denmark, the United Kingdom, Sweden, The Netherlands, Greece and the court of the Russian Tsar and the Emperor of Japan. On the label, it carries the assignment of H.M. Queen Margarethe II of Denmark.
