“The Best of Two Worlds”

The ALCÓBIDOS project was born in February 2017 from the ambition of two friends to promote the sour cherry fruit of Alcobaça and Óbidos PGI, through its main component, the sour cherry liqueur (ginja) of Alcobaça and Óbidos.

The origin of the name ALCÓBIDOS comes from the agglutination of the words Alcobaça and Óbidos, both known worldwide for their history and traditions, with each partner coming from each of these locations and with the main objective of bringing the best of these “two worlds” to the customer!

The investment includes the planting of several hectares of sour cherry orchards, planted on land that was mostly abandoned, thus contributing to its environmental recovery and to the creation of local jobs. Also part of the project is the creation of a space for the production, packaging and storage of the ginja and gin.

In the specific case of the gin, the idea comes once again from focusing on the production of botanical spirits produced in the West region of Portugal, which includes Alcobaça and Óbidos, enabling consumers to taste products from this region in a different and pleasant way.

Since its foundation, ALCÓBIDOS has also assumed the desire to be a space of opportunities for other areas related to its business, such as design, ceramics, glass, thus contributing to the promotion and development of creativity in this region of Portugal.
