Schapps (3, Hort Street)

Algímia’s first industrial experience was a schnapps strainer, which took the water from the irrigation canal. King Carlos III allowed the natives of the Crown of Aragon to trade with America. In the Kingdom of Valencia there was already a tradition of making schnapps, that were exported mainly to France. Now the American market opens. In 1784, the industry was active as cooper master Bautista Esteve, married to Josefa Palacio, and lived and worked in Algímia.
