MESTRES DAS RIBEIRAS
Petit Futé's opinion on MESTRES DAS RIBEIRAS
Mestres das Ribeiras is a collection of Santo Antão grogues chosen for their unique aromas. Made like agricultural rum from sugar cane juice, they are still produced in the same way as they were several centuries ago, when they were sold to sailors who were leaving for the New World. A cultivation of the cane in terraces in steep valleys (Ribeiras), a machete cut, a long natural fermentation and distillation in copper stills heated with bagasse, give it this unique vegetable bouquet.
The Mestres collection, sold in superb bottles, is made of Grogue Novo (white), Velha (aged) and Gin d'Ilha, the first gin made in Cape Verde, made from Grogue Novo infused with a secret blend of herbs and spices, with of course juniper, but also herbs from Santo Antão Island. The result is a fragrant gin, to be drunk dry or with tonic, preferably on the beach!
You will find them, as well as a selection of Cape Verdean products (teas, soaps, jams, honey, Fogo wine, etc.) at the Mestres kiosk at the pier in Porto Novo. Have a good tasting!
