Chocolicor is a family business with more than 30 years of existence that inherited a vast experience in the production of typical Portuguese liqueurs.
The company is located in the beautiful city of Caldas da Rainha, which is closely linked to the medieval town of Óbidos.
It was designed to stand out in the market not as a large-scale production company, but rather to focus on quality and innovation, maintaining traditional and sometimes even artisanal methods of liqueur production.
We strive for sustainable production and look for profitable production methods without over-industrializing, thus avoiding changing the final product.
We carefully select our raw materials, always seeking that they comply with previously defined standards.
Our mission over the years has been to produce well in order to satisfy our customers, to create, innovate and reinvent authentic and genuine flavors both from Portuguese sweets and from around the world.
Today, the globalization of markets obliges us to do so.
The company is not present in large-scale distribution by choice, which guarantees our customers a unique standard of quality and exclusivity.
