Macieira Royal Brandy with a history dating back to 1865, has been following generations of consumers and connoisseurs, ranging from kings and poets to connoisseurs and old brandy lovers, within and across borders. Internationally recognised, Macieira has won several awards since its presence at the World Expo in Paris in 1889.
More than 125 years after its launch, Macieira "5 STAR" remains the trusted and preferred brand of the Portuguese people and some from beyond Portugal.
Macieira is the result of the distillation of wines from selected Portuguese grapes. This Brandy is blended with aged fortified wine. The Brandy is produced in the heart of Estremadura, whose wine culture goes back to Roman times. The climate, strongly influenced by the breezes of the Atlantic, and by the rain, is temperate, giving origin to the red wine casts of Trincadeira, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, aromatic, elegant, rich in tannins with medium body and striking acidity, and whites, Arinto and Fernao Pires, fresh, light, citrus with fine acidity. The careful distillation of these wines results in a high-quality Brandy.
Macieira has been recognised beyond Portugal: the brand was selected to replenish stocks of cognac destroyed during the Second World War. It has a golden brown colour, marked with green and orange hues. Its aspect is clear and bright. Lightly fragrant.
