There are several fairs dedicated to craft ales and specialised establishments where they may be enjoyed (birriteques and cerveteques). Ratafia, which has always been present at fairs, is a sector where new producers and brands appear every year.
Entrepreneurs have started to revive the art of distilling, with the appearance of new gins, an apple producer is promoting the idea of cider, and hop plantations have flourished, as a result of this emerging industry.
Produced in Olot, this is the most popular ratafia on the market. This brand survived when the drink had fallen out of favour. It is made using traditional artisan methods of maceration, ageing and filtering.
Company: Xavier Codina SL
