Bodegas Carmelitano Museum

Benicasim / Benicàssim

The Carmelite people arrived to the mountains of the Desert de les Palmes in the 17th century, and here they built a monastery. One of them was Brother Antonio de Jesús María, an important studious and expert in aromatic herbs. When this building became a Novitiate House, it was necessary to attend to the needs of the novices, their studies and formation, and for this reason they thought of selling an aromatic drink, extracted from the infinity of herbs native to the mountains of the Desert de les Palmes.

Some stills were installed in the basement of the Monastery and, by 15 October 1896, the first bottles of our famous Liquor were marketed.

Due to the poor communication, the sellers thought to move the distilleries to Benicàssim and, in 1912, the current cellars and distilleries were founded in which, in addition to the elaboration of our exquisite Liquor, the range of products has been expanded, combining old guidelines and artisan recipes with the latest modern techniques.

Recently, the line of Carmelitano distillates has obtained the seal of Castellón Ruta de Sabor; an initiative that promotes the province's best products.
