December 2023

So here we are, at the 31 December and what a year it has been. We brought a 150-year-old estate back to life as a leading eco-hotel in Portugal. We met so many wonderful guests, many whom brought us gins from around the world. The Gin Library increased to 1,332 gins as we closed the year. That is one amazing grand total, and puts us well on the road to be the largest in the world in 2024. 

A new range of gins has been developed and brought to market ready for the new year. With 6 new editions and expansion to the mainland as well as our Mother Vaca Vodka and Mother Vaca craft Azorean beers we are poised to continue the growth of our businesses and our support to the Ocean Azores Foundation through sales of our products.

We rescued 2 new cats, joining the gin library team with Lemon and Riccardo. Our work with the foundation has resulted in more companies stopping swimming with dolphins, something that causes impact here in the waters around these islands we are proud to call home. More to do in 2024. Until we see you the team here at The Solar Branco Eco Estate wish you a good new year.
