How to
enjoy it

OUR
HISTORY

Ponche, which is the Spanish word for Punch, is original from ancient Persia, where a similar drink was elaborated. It was called “panj” – meaning five – in reference to the number of ingredients used: brandy, sugar, lemon, water and tea.

Through India the Punch then got into the hands of the East India Company, who introduced it to the British colonies in the early seventeenth century.

During the eighteenth century Punch consumption spread throughout the Western world and its recipe was adjusted to local tastes in each country, varying the type of alcohol and spices used in its elaboration. Punch quickly established itself as a drink for celebrations and special occasions.

Origen

Ponche Caballero is born in the tradition of the Caballero family. José Caballero, coming from Galicia, starts to blend the traditional northern “queimadas” (a homemade liqueur using maceration of botanicals) with liquors from southern Spain in El Puerto de Santa María, developing the secret recipe that is maintained until today.

1830

The punch of the Caballero family is getting famous, despite that in the beginning it was only conceived for family and friends. They start to bottle small quantities to meet local demand.

1917

From this date Ponche Caballero extends throughout the Spanish geography. The bottles are wrapped manually in silver paper, as a tribute to the traditional silver punch bowls.

1943

Ponche Caballero introduces the first metallized spirit bottle in the world, a technological and industrial process that was never seen before and that has been imitated since by many others. The Ponche Caballero silver bottle has become an icon in Spain.

1969

Ponche Caballero becomes the best-selling liqueur in Spain and ranks amongst the Top 10 worldwide.

1990

Ponche Caballero is now enjoyed in over 30 countries and is the main reference of a Spanish liqueur.
