Picos de Cabariezo” has opted  to work in accordance with ancestral distillation methods.

Picos de Cabariezo area has been distilling since 780, using the traditional lebaniega ALQUITARA: the big difference in distillates. Quality and tradition are the key.

The traditional Lebaniega Alquitara is made of copper, a unique container of Arabic origin, which has been used since ancient times to distilled drop by drop, that traditional liqueur that warmed the soul and accompanied it faithfully on so many occasions.

With this heritage and knowledge of master artisan, the distillery is made up of only six typical copper Alquitaras, but with the incorporation of independent temperature control, with which we keep processes even more careful, constant, and very slow, which guarantee our own and high demands

In the interview shared below, we gain insights into the company products with a fresh perspective on the values and qualities producer is looking for in the production journey.

Q. What is the core product of Your brand?

A. We produce premium spirits distilled exclusively in Alquitara, not in alembic.

Q. Tell us about the process Your product goes through, from sourcing to the packaging phase?

A. Our products are distilled exclusively in Alquitara, not in alembic, because it keeps better the aromatic charge although it produces less quantity. Depending on the final product (liquor, liqueur, gin or brandy) we complete the process with maceration, with ageing, etc.

Q. What are the qualities You are looking for when creating Your product?

A. We are always working to produce premium quality products.

Q.  What makes Your product better than the one of Your competitor?

A. We only distil using Alquitara, that’s the big difference between us and our competitors. Our products are more aromatic and have a great taste. For the gins, each botanical is distilled separately and then we do the blend. Our gins are the most awarded Spanish gins.

Q. What is the greatest challenge You’ve encountered while creating Your product?

A. When we created the winery we decided to produce exquisite products, preferring to have less production but of higher quality. This has been and continues to be our great challenge.
