1 Azores


Each Baleia brand has a unique whale drawn on the bottle. Taking inspiration from the many species of whales that can be found in the waters around the islands of the Azores.

Baleia Gin

Sperm Whale | Cachalote

The Sperm Whale or Cachalote is the iconic whale of the Azores and was the obvious choice for the Baleia Gin bottle.


Baleia Beer

Humpback | Baleia De bossa

For our beer we decided to look to the Humpback Whale or Baleia De Bossa as the inspiration for this design. Incorporating the waves of the Atlantic Ocean as well. The design of the beer is to reflect the Azorean roots of the product.

Baleia Vodka

Orca | Assassina

Our vodka was designed with the Orca or the Killer Whale in mind. The inspiration came from a photograph taken by Nuno Sa of Orcas, swimming at the surface of the water at sunrise.

Killer Whales are seen in the waters of the Azores and as the design of the vodka is meant to reference the fact that it is distilled through the volcanic black rock of São Miguel.
