June 2024

June here at The Solar Branco Eco Estate has been busy as usual. From rescuing a little bunny, and falling in love with her, to a some big news about our next gin release. There is always a lot going on as we look forwards to an exciting summer here in the Azores. 

We launched our brand video for The Ghosts of The Ocean Gin range, highlighting the beauty of the ocean that surrounds the Azores and the €1 donation made for each bottle sold see the video here. Our gin range will increase to 9 by September, all available at The Gin Library, as well as in bars all over the island. In the month of June our collection surpassed 1,500 bottles. An incredible achievement, of which the whole team is incredibly proud. This makes us one of the largest in the world and we will soon take the record, hopefully early next year.

On the estate, the gardens and flowers are in full bloom. The beehives we have installed are doing well and the countryside is alive with wildlife which is always a pleasure to see. We now have over 150 citrus trees on the estate with more to plant next year in Spring. But for now we will let the grounds recover from all the construction over the last 5 years and take an occasional break at sunset to take in the stunning views.
