Medganic | Medganic - Justina de Liébana
Justina de Liébana presents an orujo and organic liqueurs recognized by the Ecological Agriculture Regulatory Council (CRAE), completely natural spirits, free of toxics, with only the natural additives provided by the soil in which the strains grow. This natural development of the grape, and its subsequent distillation, produces a clean and crystalline liquor, softer than usual thanks to its lower graduation. These are organic, genuine and traditional spirits. Orujo is a Spanish liquor, a pomace brandy from northern Spain. It is a transparent spirit with an alcohol content over 50% (100° proof). The name of the drink comes from the ingredients. The left over parts of the grape after crushing are called ‘orujos’ in Spanish.

Orujo is a Spanish liquor, a pomace brandy from northern Spain. It is a transparent spirit with an alcohol content over 50% (100° proof).  The name of the drink comes from the ingredients. The left over parts of the grape after crushing are called ‘orujos’ in Spanish. 

Orujo’s basic ingredient is the residue from wine production.The skins, seeds and stalks of the grapes are all put into closed vats and then fermented before being distilled in order to produce the liquor. The stills, which are called alambique, tend to be like large copper kettles which are heated over an open fire.

This Spanish liquor is very similar to other European distilled spirits such as marc from France, grappa from Italy and tsiroupo from Greece.

JUSTINA DE LIÉBANA

CANTABRIA

“Never say you’ll not drink this orujo somewhere else”, Justina replied to a neighbour when he said that her orujos would never leave the Liébana Valley where they were born. Time agreed with that tiny woman, who danced as she had never danced before the day she received her first overseas order.

“Good orujo is made from 1% talent and 99% love” is the phrase she borrowed from a great philosopher adapting it to her peaceful world of the distillery. She truly believed and practised this philosophy through out her life. And only as someone who was born and bred in the Liébana Valley, with her unique wisdom and drop to drop, she worked condensing and distilling her beloved orujo. An orujo full of history embodying the spirit of the Cantabrian mountains and the traditions of its people.

Justina de Liébana presents an orujo and organic liqueurs recognized by the Ecological Agriculture Regulatory Council (CRAE), completely natural spirits, free of toxics, with only the natural additives provided by the soil in which the strains grow. This natural development of the grape, and its subsequent distillation, produces a clean and crystalline liquor, softer than usual thanks to its lower graduation.

Justina de Liébana is the personal project of Isabel García, the third generation of a family from the Valley of Liébana who continues to create this pomace brandy in a traditional way, but focuses its product on the gourmet and cocktail worlds.

It is the tribute to an almost extinct way of cultivating the land, it is a gratefulness for what it is, an awareness of the environment, and a collaboration between local small farmers that supplies the distillery with their eco honey or blueberries. Even in its packaging there is social awareness. Justina de Liébana liqueurs come accompanied by bags that have been created by a non profit organization of Santander.

Justina, the grandmother, used to say that it is necessary to return to the earth everything that the earth gives you. This new and fresh line of liquors is the result of this returning gratitude.

The international recognition paid to these organic, genuine and traditional spirits include the Gold Medal at the China Wine & Spirits Awards 2016. And in 2015 they also collected several Stars at the Great Taste Awards in London.

Proud of her grandmother and the land she belong, Isabel, who has recently been recognized with the Award of Excellence for Innovation for Rural Women 2016, can loudly toast, “there is a great woman behind a great orujo!”.
