Some young Basque companies to discover!

The Basque country has an endless supply of products that reflect its rich culture and heritage. Below are our favorite local businesses:

 

Ura Spirits

Located in Biarritz on the Basque coast, the distillery URA SPIRITS which takes its name both from water, “ura” in Basque, offers spirits based on vacuum distillation. There are very few distilleries in the world that do it in this way because it does not allow to produce in large quantities.

Lowering the pressure in the still will lower the boiling point of the alcohol. So botanicals are distilled at low temperature and their aromas are respected!

Each botanical has its preferred temperature and pressure. In order to obtain the most qualitative and precise distillate possible, each botanical is therefore distilled separately in small batches of 3 liters to be then assembled. The alcohol content (% vol alc) of the blend is reduced, cold, before bottling, with a mineral water from the Pyrenees drawn at an altitude of 1100 meters and having a very low minerality and a low PH.

All their spirits are produced from organic wheat alcohol and the reduction of the% vol alc is achieved with mineral water from the Pyrenees.
