Black Pig Alentejo

This distillery is located on the Alentejo coast, in the municipality of Santiago de Cacém, producing gin, rum and arbutus.

In 2019, the Black Pig Alentejo brand, with its Gin, became the most awarded brand in the whole of Europe, also distinguished as one of the best entrepreneurial ideas in Portugal in TurismUP and with the winning of several gold medals in international competitions .

Its artisanal production method, respecting the Alentejo precepts and traditions, working exclusively with botanists from the montado and the Alentejo coast, without an ecological footprint and with an environmental conscience, means that a genuinely Alentejo and sustainable product is produced.

The biodiversity of this unique ecosystem is its catalyst and Black Pig Alentejo also represents Alentejo culture through the creation of the pata negra in extensive regime, fully assembled in tune with native trees such as the cork and strawberry tree.
