What you'll do

Rocha Negra Gin is distilled here on the island of São Miguel, a place where black volcanic rock meets the pristine blue Atlantic ocean. Rocha Negra means “Black Rock” and honours the island, formed millions of years ago, from molten lava fighting the sea. Rocha Negra is intrinsically linked to the environment of the Azores. It is on this coastline with its unrelenting and unforgiving jagged edged rocks, that the botanicals found in Rocha Negra grow. This experience is held come rain or shine. When the weather is nice, the library doors are open, bringing the beautiful views of the green hills of Sao Miguel to the ocean beyond. There is also ample seating outside and we invite you to tour the grounds with a G&T in hand. For rainy days, we have comfortable seating inside. Your gin tasting includes a journey through the history of the Azores, the Solar and the citrus trade with the UK as well as learning to make, and enjoying, the perfect Rocha Negra Gin and Tonic. The Solar Branco Eco-Estate, through your host Ali Bullock, is a proud ambassador for the Rocha Negra Gin brand.
