We are producers of over 22.000 sour cherry trees making us self-sufficient in the production of our Liqueur, in which we have committed all the knowledge and love of seven decades of the recipe, to bring to the Portuguese and the world our sour cherry of the heart, Ginja Mariquinhas!”

Cherry trees


We are a family company which has inherited the legacy of over 70 years of tradition left by our mentor and breeder Abílio Ferreira de Carvalho.
The quality of our products begins in the field, as we own more than 22,000 cherry trees. This guarantees self-sufficiency and, above all, the quality of our Sour Cherry Mariquinhas Liqueur and other products made from our fruit, the sour cherry.
It is at the factory that, as a team, we transform the sour cherries into our liqueur and we are committed to maintaining the quality and tradition which has marked us out over the years. With strong ancestral connections, we continue to strengthen flavours and revive memories, bringing to each one of you the true taste of this liqueur since 1949.
