Rives history dates back to 1880 when the company was established by Don Augusto Haupold, German Consul in south of Spain and visionary entrepreneur. He soon built a distillery, specializing in the production and distribution of distilled spirits, liqueurs and non-alcoholic concentrates. Rives has been a 100% Spanish owned family business for more than 130 years.

We use the most traditional and artisanal process in our production in order to achieve the best quality. Unique 30m high column stills rectify the alcohol and reduce any further impurities; one of the highest distilleries in Europe. Two large hundred year old copper pot stills are used for the distillation of the botanicals together with the purest rectified alcohol and water. The resulting distillation (after boiling the alcohol together with the botanics and water) is called the alcoholato, obtained drop by drop. The Master Distiller throws away both the ‘heads’ and ‘tails’ of the distillate, selecting only the ‘heart’ (middle body), right at the point when the taste and the botanical concentrates are optimum. The resulting distillate is left to settle for 24 hours, thus allowing the botanicals’ essentials oils to blend perfectly with the product.
