Established 2013 | António Cuco
António Cuco founded the Sharish Gin Distillery in 2013, situated in the village of Monsaraz, in the heart of the Alentejo wine region, one of Portugal’s finest. The former school teacher grows the oranges and lemons on his own estate and together they form the base line along with the locally grown apple bravo de Esmolfe for his existing gin range. The distillation of each botanical is carried out separately and slowly, with the vanilla and cinnamon infused later. The distillery uses currently two Portuguese Traditional Alembic Stills, with around 450 bottles per batch, which are individually numbered and signed.
