THE SECRET BEHIND the “Ginja d’Óbidos Vila das Rainhas” sour cherry liqueur starts in the orchard, where the fruit is produced and picked. After a thorough selection, already at Frutóbidos’ facilities, the sour cherries are placed in an alcohol infusion. After a prolonged resting period, the fruit is duly prepared to be later mixed with the sugar syrup.
Before the filtering and subsequent bottling, the liqueur is subject to lab tests, which enable us to assure the compliance with the product specifications. The success of the “Ginja d’Óbidos Vila das Rainhas” sour cherry liqueur is in the essence of the handmade production, without any colourings or flavourings, obtaining a ruby-coloured nectar with a velvety flavour, which should be consumed at a temperature of between 14ºC and 15ºC.
Depending on the consumer’s preference, the “Ginja d’Óbidos Vila das Rainhas” sour cherry liqueur bottles can be provided with or without fruit; the fruit is merely decorative and to this effect, we select the most beautiful and delicious sour cherries from the crop.
