Best Sip – Orujo
Orujo is the Spanish brandy made from what’s left after pressing grapes to make wine. While it is traditionally from the Northwest of Spain – Galicia (where it’s also known as augardente and caña), Asturias (oruxu), and Castilla Y Leon – it is available everywhere.
It’s transparent, strong and occasionally infused with with lemon, honey, “de Hierbas” or other flavourings if it’s home-made. I think the version we had might have been de hierbas but we couldn’t figure out what that meant it was infused with. We couldn’t quite get the translation working and the Orujo didn’t help!
