Special recipe which combines the traditional mix of herbs and spices with an aged "eau de vie" ("aguardente"). Bottle of typical Portuguese liquor, with 30% alcohol content and 70cl capacity. Initially prepared in the lab of a pharmacy, through infusion and double distillation of seeds and herbs, the result was a sweet drink. It can be served as a digestif, with or without ice, or as an aperitif, with lemon juice and/or gin. It is available in a very distinctive bottle with a ribbon that continues to be tied manually. Since 1929, the drink became so popular that, up to this day, nobody has refuted its authority to use the slogan “Portugal’s liquor”.
