Also called "Ginjinha de Óbidos", the liqueur has a strong flavour, intensely perfumed with the bittersweet sour cherries. Dark red in colour, the liqueur has two distinct varieties: the simple liqueur and the liqueur with fruit inside.
It is believed that the origin of this liquor goes back to the 19th century, a convent recipe. It is believed that a friar took advantage of the large quantities of fruit existing in the region, carrying out the refinement of the liquor known today. The formula was gradually disseminated, the liqueur being made at a family level by locals, proud to present distinguished guests with the best sour cherries. More or less alcoholic, sweet or acidic, the sour cherry is an ex-libris of the town.
