Information about the craftsman

This distillery owns a family tradition dating back to the late sixteenth century, when the wine obtained from the wineyards of the soft mountains started to be transformed in anise liquor in Constantine area. This old factory produces distilled anise liqueurs in a traditional way, using copper kettles  that are heated in oak wood ovens. Their specialty is creamy cherry liquor, obtained by macerating cherries in aniseed brandy, and has been famous for more than 50 years.

Information about the area

Constantina is located on the north of Seville province and is included in the Natural Park of the Sierra Norte. It is a mid-mountain area with meadows of oaks, chestnut groves alternate with pine and elm forests. The streams bring freshness to the area, and we highlight the route of the Ribera del Huéznar, with its green areas ideal for a family day or to make a picnic. The trails of “Los Castañares”, “Molino del Corcho”, “Camino de la Jurdana” and “Cerro del Hierro” are perfect to enjoy nature and in autumn they constitute ideal places to pick mushrooms.

From a historical standpoint, Constantina is in the way of the Roman old trail which connects with Merida and Seville, which gave it considerable importance as a strategic location for its proximity to the mines of silver and copper in the vicinity and the trade of agricultural products (including the famous roman wine "Cocolubis").

It is worth visiting the castle XIV century overlooking the town, getting lost in the Moorish Quarter and just walking around breathing history, contemplating the various palaces, churches and convents.

Constantine gastronomy is notable for its Iberian pork products: hams, sausages and grilled meats delight visitors and game meats, mushrooms and artisans sweets are famous all over the area.

Se trata de una zona de media montaña, con dehesas de encinas, alcornoques, castaños que alternan con bosquetes de pinos y olmos. Los riachuelos le aportan frescura, destacando la ruta de la Ribera del Huéznar, con sus zonas verdes ideales para pasar un día en familia o hacer un pic-nic. Los senderos señalizados de “Los Castañares”, “Molino del Corcho”, “Camino de la Jurdana” y “Cerro del Hierro” son muy agradables para disfrutar de la naturaleza y en otoño son idóneos para coger setas.

Desde el punto de vista histórico, la calzada romana que la comunica con Mérida y Sevilla, le dio una importancia notable como lugar estratégico por su cercanía a los núcleos mineros de plata y cobre de los alrededores y su comercio de productos agrícolas (entre los que destacan el vino “Cocolubis”).
