An aromatic and alluring botanical Liqueur that contains the heart and soul of a country.

The Spirit that would become the most popular drink in Portugal was developed over many years, but it became standardized and received its name in 1929. The strain of World War II nearly killed of the factory. But Jose Carranca Redondo invested his savings to buy the secret recipe where it became a homemade, family operation. Still owned and run by José’s descendants, the company still produces their famous Licor Beirāo.

Licor Beirão — the name has become virtually synonymous with Portuguese culture. The roots of this dram go back two centuries. But in its current form it is a botanical Liqueur with secret recipe of thirteen herbs, seeds, and spices that are cold-infused for at least three weeks. It is then gently distilled twice to refine the flavor profile and bottled at 22% ABV. Each bottled is tied with a yellow ribbon by hand.
