Senhor Raposa

Coming: Late Summer 2022

Journey back to 1860. Upon his return to the Azores, Senhor Raposa would share stories of his adventures around the world in his secret drinking den. Special drinks and cocktails would be enjoyed late into the evening. The only way to discover the secret drinking den is to be invited by Senhor Raposa himself. Read more.

LOW WASTE | SUSTAINABILITY

A LOW WASTE BAR: The Gin Library as part of The Solar Branco Eco Estate aims to recycle and reuse as much as possible. Rocha Negroni and Baleia bottles are returned to the distillery for washing and reuse. All our paper, glass and plastic is sorted on-site and taken for recycling. Our waste snacks and food is given to our free range chickens (if Senhor Miguel and Nuno don’t get to it first.) Leftover garnishes can all be composted.
