The neighbouring country, Portugal, is rich in beverages. In addition to their famous white wines, there are also famous liquors and creams from Portugal, for their flavours and the mixing of berries and nuts.
Some common liquors from Portugal feature the bitter almond from the Algarve. It is usually a creamy liquor with a powerful taste, found in many regions, in various formats and with a high level of quality.
Herbal liqueurs are quite common in Portugal, something that usually happens too in Galicia, one of the Spanish regions that border the country. When it comes to talk, precisely, about such herbal liquors from Portugal, the Beirão stands out: it is a soft liquor that goes very well for its digestive qualities. It is amber coloured, with aroma and sweet flavour of herbs. Among its ingredients we find autochthonous plants, spices and seeds. And all this is combined with other plants from different countries: Brazil, India... It is elaborated with a sophisticated secret formula.
When it comes to speak about orujo, we also find some in Portugal, as we have already said, because of its proximity to Galicia. There are many types of grape spirits, and they are often given different names according to countries or regions (Marc, in France; Grappa, in Italy...) and in Portugal, they are called bagaçeiras.
With a somewhat eschatological name, Merda Liqueur is a milk liqueur. Its origin dates back to 1974, and is quite classic in Portugal. Amber coloured, it has aromas of cinnamon and cocoa, and tastes like citrus and a sweet and soft flavour of vanilla and milk. We do not only find it in cocktails, but it can be consumed alone thanks to this great mix that makes it really tasty. In addition, it has an alcohol content of 20%.
Regarding fruit liqueurs, Sour Cherry Liqueur Espinheira With Fruit is a temptation. In this case, its colour is dark and this is because of the cherries included in its elaboration. Of course, it features notes of cherry and is obtained from the maceration of a sour variety of this fruit.
