The quality of MACIEIRA "5 STAR" has been recognised beyond Portugal: the brand was selected to replenish stocks of cognac destroyed during the Second World War.

More than 125 years after its launch, MACEIRA "5 STAR" remains the trusted and preferred brand of the Portuguese people and some from beyond Portugal. The unaltered formula, which distinguishes it and has made it the market leader in Portugal is also appreciated in approximately 30 countries on five continents where MACIEIRA "5 STAR" is currently exported to.

Tasting Notes: Easily distinguished from competitor brandies. It has a golden brown colour, marked with green and orange hues. Its aspect is clear and bright. Lightly fragrant. Results from the combination of wine and ""vinho abafado"" distillate added through a method of blending and aging that uses only small oak and chestnut Portuguese casks. It is delicately complex and typical - characteristic of wines that are distilled. The use of vinho abafado gives subtle notes of anise and coriander. It is smooth, rich and well structured, with subtle tannins. The different flavours, vanilla, apricot, peach and honey are perfectly married with the discreet presence of chestnut sap.

Distillation: Macieira is the result of the distillation of wines from selected Portuguese grapes. The spirit is blended with aged fortified wine. It 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.

Recommendations: MACIEIRA can be enjoyed in a small brandy snifter glass, straight and at room temperature, as a digestive or consumed in a long glass with ice, mixed with soda, fruit juices or soft drinks. MACIEIRA is versatile and always provides moments rich in emotion. With your family or friends, MACIEIRA is unique.
