Winemaking: Aliança XO 40 years was distilled in 1963 by charentais method (2 distilleries) and aged for more than 40 years in French, American and Portuguese oak barrels. Eaux-de-vie ageing, conducted under the watchful eye of our winemaking team, requires a great deal of patience and attention to detail. The same applies to the conditions in which these eaux-de-vies are aged, enabling complex tertiary aromas to develop over the years. Aliança XO 40 years enjoys a special ageing process in cellars where the initially high moisture level is gradually decreased, a technique which has an impact on the mature aguardente’s style and roundness.
