DEVELOPMENT OF THE PATXARAN
How is patxaran made? We won't tell you all the secrets of how to make your own homemade patxaran because it is a precious secret kept by all the families in the Basque country. To make it simple, the sloes are macerated for several months in anisette. All good patxaran is unfiltered and contains no artificial flavors or other coloring agents. The color and aromas obtained after maceration depend on the variety of sloes, the aniseed used and many other criteria linked to the craftsmanship of the producer.
ORIGIN OF PATXARAN or PACHARAN (in Spanish)
Patxaran is a drink from Navarre, one of the provinces of the southern Basque country. It owes its name to the sloes - patxarana in Basque - , sometimes wild, used for its production. The sloes used are small, about the size of a hazelnut, and are harvested in the autumn. One of the secrets of the production comes from the varieties used but also from the maturity of the fruit.

HISTORY OF THE EGIAZKI HOUSE
In 2013 Camille and Benjamin Fourt Arteaga, young twins from Saint Pée sur Nivelle in the Basque Country, made one of the first Patxarans in the North Basque Country. Almost all Patxarans are produced in the South Basque Country, particularly in Navarre. As St Pée is at the gateway to Navarre, it has a strong Navarrese influence. To date, there are only two producers listed in France. With a background in agriculture and food processing (BTS and Engineering School) and a strong attachment to their culture, their objective was to work with a product from the Basque region. Their choice was to grow fruit and transform it into liqueurs. In 2014, EGIAZKI was born and it took more than a year to find the perfect recipe. The two enthusiasts planted 4 hectares of blackthorns on the heights of their village and in December 2015 EGIAZKI Patxaran was marketed for the first time, making them the largest artisanal producers in Iparralde (Northern Basque Country). In June 2018, Patxaran EGIAZKI won a historic award at the Epicure competition of the World of Fine Foods. It was the gold medal in the alcoholic drinks category. This is a great first for a Patxaran. They are now the specialists in Basque liqueur.
