The Laraha plantation
Now that you know everything about our unique Laraha orange, it's time to learn more about the distillation process of the Genuine Curacao Liqueur. Distilling our world-famous liqueur is a craft that we have mastered in every step of the way; from the moment we harvest our unique Laraha oranges, till the pouring of the liqueur in our exclusive bottles.
The first step is taken at the Laraha plantation, which is located in the Eastern part of Curacao. Each Laraha tree in the plantation produces between 150 to 200 fruits, which result in 25 to 35 kilograms (55 to 77 pounds) of dried peels. The trees are harvested twice a year, but the harvesting is not as simple as you would think. The Laraha trees are 3 meters (9 feet) talll and taking one fruit requires a special technique.
