“Can you explain what is the deal with the little black ceramic bird I see everywhere?”

The Portuguese Swallow.It all started with one of the most well-known artists that Portugal has had Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro. Bordallo Pinheiro in 1891 decided to produce a set of ceramic pieces that looked like swallows. The pieces quickly integrated into Portuguese homes and became a symbol for a Portuguese house which lives on still today.The swallow is a migratory bird which always returns to the same place to nest, year after year. It is said to happen because a swallow only has one partner throughout its life. So it’s no wonder that the swallow is associated with values like Home, Family, Love, Fidelity and Loyalty which resulted in the exchange of these ceramic figures between lovers. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Sidrada. The perfect cider, from imperfect apples.

In the 14th century, the Monks of Cister of the Monastery of Alcobaça chose Bombarral to plant their orchards due to their “good clay”. From this rich history and agricultural tradition, products born made with the best apples of local plantations, in the Family Clímaco Pereira for 3 generations. Crafted in a handmade way with 100% apple juice, our cider varieties look for different tastes and different audiences, with a more natural and authentic product than commercial ciders.
