Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur
Chinola Passion Fruit Liqueur is a handcrafted beverage made from distilled spirits and real passion fruit from our dedicated farms. Through our unique blend and proprietary formulation, we have created a ‘natural’ liqueur with unparalleled taste and versatility. It can be consumed by itself or mixed with a base spirit, wine or sparkling wine to create a top-quality cocktail.
Hidden in the heart of the Samana peninsula along the northern coast of the Dominican Republic is the small coastal community of Playa el Valle and the home of our passion fruit farms. Locally referred to as El Valle de Chinola, our farms are located in between large hills that create an organic setting for our passion fruit to thrive. The passion fruit hybrid we grow is unique to us. It took 3 years to cultivate our passion fruit because we selected only the top performing plants with the best taste profile. Our farms are also home to pigs, mules, cows, goats, and chickens – all of whom play an integral part in our unique farming process. Passion fruit grows on vines like grapes, where beautiful purple and white flowers bear fruit in 2 to 3 months. The flowers open only once for a few hours, which is why our pollination techniques are critical.
