History and Production

Warninks, the leading brand of advocaat worldwide, boasts a rich heritage dating back to the 16th century. The name "advocaat" is derived from the Dutch word "advocaat" meaning "advocate" or "lawyer." Legend suggests the drink was originally created by a lawyer's wife who used leftover egg yolks to create a creamy concoction.

Traditionally, advocaat is made with egg yolks, sugar, brandy, and vanilla. Warninks uses a closely guarded recipe that ensures a smooth, consistent texture and a flavour that has stood the test of time.
