VILA DAS RAINHAS is the brand of the most traditional Ginja d’Óbidos Liqueur, in honour of all the queens who have passed through Óbidos and also in honour of the land where this liqueur is produced and which is appreciated by men and women worldwide.
The sour cherry Prunus Cerasus is a bittersweet fruit indigenous to Asia Minor but which quickly spread throughout Europe and in Portugal it found a particularly conductive soil and climate for growth. The Ginja d’ Óbidos Liqueur was created by Benedictine monks and its recipe was a well-kept secret until, in the 20th century, the company Abadia de Alcobaca that produced this conventual liqueur disappeared and the “secret” was revealed.
The first to produce this source cherry liqueur, Frutóbidos takes to a higher level the traditional and conventual method of making Ginja d’Óbidos Liqueur, thanks to a careful selection of the best fruit, a long infusion period and the absence of colourings or flavourings, in a careful process defined by its high security standards, all of which makes the experience of savouring this liqueur a moment worthy of royalty.
