“6 awards-winning distillery...”

Fabrica de Licores Mulher de Capote
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 August 2013

...and perhaps 15 different types of alcool, brandy, liqueur.... The visit itself is no more than 10 minutes + XX minutes at the shop at the end. If you have no time to visit the distillery, you can still buy the alcools in all the "souvenir shops" on the island (shops, supermarket, airport...)
The place is indeed hard to find, but if you come from the North-Coast heading to the town from the West, you follow the signs "place of interrest". If you get lost don't try to access the shop (many one-way roads), go back to the road along the coast and start again. No need to park in the street, there is a parking. Visits can be in Portugese, Spanish and English.

When in Ribeira Grande there is not so much to do, so a visit to the factory or outlet is a nice activity. You may taste all of their liqueur. Small bottles 2 Euro, bigger bottles from 10 and up. Lots of souvenirs also. Stop for a 15 min visit- worth the time !

Hard to find, great place to sample and buy. Fabrica de Licores A Mulher de Capote, Rua do Berquo n 10, Ribeira Grande, 296 472 831. Store located at Rua Goncalo Bezerra, n 13, Ribeira Grande for purchase of the cute souvenir bottles of blackberry and tangerina. They have other flavors, too. Those were are favorites. They have larger sizes, too. Smaller are easier to pack. Use liquors over ice cream, add as flavoring to breads, reduce to make sauce for desserts.

Boy is the Fabrica de Licores hard to find! We were doing concentric circles all over town trying to find this place. My beloved husband does not ask for directions!! By some enormous stroke of luck we drove right by the building. Apparently in May the production workers are on holiday. So, the gal from the office and the two of us were there all by ourselves. She showed us the wooden barrels in the production area and a tiny souvenir area. I had read about the small Portugese figures bottles. That is really why i wanted to go there. I bought three: a man in a black star wars looking outfit, a woman in traditional Portuguese dress, and a woman in the capote (Mulher de Capote). Now I can't bear to give any of them away. Really cute. We also bought a regular sized bottle of the cream liqueur for our own consumption on the island. My husband later saw a bottle in a grocery store and he swears it was half the price.
I thought I had photos of the little bottles. I will add those later in case someone else thiks they are a cute souvenir.
