Resolí from Cuenca
Cuenca city is linked to the Resolí as it is to its Easter, of international tourist interest, to its hanging houses, or to the cultural life of the city, linked to Music and to two important museums, the Abstract Art one, and the Castile-La Mancha Science one.
Its origin dates back to the Renaissance when the Spanish nobility, through the properties the Crown had in the North of Italy, came into contact with the culture and the traditions of Naples Duchy. During the Peninsular War, Joseph I Bonaparte, then at the Spanish throne, liberalized its manufacturing, circulation and sale in 1809. And it would be Eugenia de Montijo, empress of France and living in Belmonte Castle, who would write to the Tuileries cooks to recommend it as digestif.
Nowadays it is not only served in a spout as the colophon of any meal among the rich gastronomic offer from Cuenca. Local manufacturers offer it bottled with the shape of the city’s hanging houses, or with shapes resembling their band and winery. No matter the ingredients used, its secret lies on the liquor from the Cuenca mountain range, made out of the skin of the grapes coming from Cuenca vineyards.
