Dried figs El Pajarero


Are you ready to embark on a delicious journey through the history, quality and exquisite flavours of Higos El Pajarero? In our company, we value the ancestral tradition that surrounds the consumption of dried figs and we are proud to offer products of the highest quality that conquer palates all over the world. Allow us to guide you along the exciting path that has led us to become a benchmark in the sector and to share with you the sweet secret of our products.


A past that stands the test of time


Dried figs have been an essential part of the human diet for millennia. Since ancient times, hunters and gatherers discovered that ripe figs falling from the trees in the warm sun became exquisite delicacies full of nutrients. This natural way of making figs has been maintained over the centuries, and at Higos El Pajarero, we carry this legacy in each of our products.


Tradition and quality in every mouthful


The tradition of growing and producing dried figs is at the heart of Higos El Pajarero. Our father and founder, Don Domingo Carrillo Aguilar, with his passion for nature and family tradition, started this adventure more than half a century ago. Since then, we have maintained and improved the high quality standards that have led us to consolidate our position as a leading company in the sector. Fuensanta Carrillo Pulido is currently at the head of the company.


We are proud to say that our plantations in the province of Badajoz, Extremadura, have been fundamental in our growth. The ideal conditions of the territory and the climate have allowed the cultivation of fig trees which, together with the experience and dedication of our growers, give life to the best dried figs on the market.


Although the company started out marketing dried figs, today it has a wide variety of products made from dried figs, such as spreadable creams, chocolate bonbons, dried fig bread, figs in syrup, bags of dried figs with rice flour in different sizes, organic bars, etc. 


The perfect combination of technology and innovation

In our commitment to technology, we join forces with innovation. We are constantly creating new products to meet the demands of the market. From Extremadura to Barcelona, our figs are carefully harvested and then taken to our packing and shipping plant. We guarantee the highest standards of quality and food safety in everything, including packaging for shipping.



A taste that conquers the world


The sweet and aromatic taste of dried figs has been appreciated throughout history. From the times when they were used as natural sweeteners to the present day, where their value as a healthy option has gained ground in the world of nutrition. At Higos El Pajarero, we are proud to keep this tradition alive and offer our customers flavours that conquer the most demanding palates.

Surprise your Senses with the Rum and Dried Fig Cocktail


On the Figs El Pajarero blog, we want to share with you an easy and delicious recipe for a rum and dried fig cocktail. This drink combines the sweet taste of dried figs with the acidity of the lemon and the intensity of the rum, creating a refreshing and exquisite experience to enjoy on any occasion. Come and try it!


You will see that among the ingredients, we mention fig liqueur. If you haven't prepared it yet, we invite you to do so. We have received many good comments about our recipe. Here you will find the complete recipe for this liqueur :)


Ingredients for two glasses of rum and dried fig cocktail


- 240 ml rum

- 120 ml fig liqueur (here is the recipe.)

- 60 ml lemon juice

- 8 dried figs, rehydrated and chopped

- Ice cubes

- Slice of lime or lemon for garnish (optional)




Start by rehydrating the dried figs by soaking them in water for at least 30 minutes. This will restore their juicy texture and make them easier to chop. Also, as El Pajarero dried figs are small, cutting them into three pieces will be enough.


2. Once rehydrated, chop the dried figs and place them in a bowl.


3. Add the rum, fig liqueur and lemon juice to a bowl with the chopped figs. Mix all the ingredients well until a homogeneous combination is obtained.


4. Fill a cocktail glass to the brim with ice.


5. Pour the rum, fig liqueur and lemon mixture over the ice.


6. If desired, garnish the cocktail with a slice of lime or lemon on the rim of the glass. This will add a fresh and visually appealing touch.


7. Gently shake the cocktail to mix the flavours and enjoy the aroma.


8. Now it's ready to sip! Sip slowly on this exquisite cocktail that combines the tropical flavours of rum and dried figs with the freshness of lime juice.


9. Oh, and the most important point, share it and enjoy it with company :)


This rum and dried fig cocktail is perfect to delight your guests at a special gathering or simply to enjoy on a relaxed evening. The combination of ingredients provides a unique balance of sweetness and acidity, creating an exceptional taste experience.


Remember that the dried figs used in this recipe are from Higos El Pajarero, known for their exceptional quality and flavour. Their juicy texture and natural sweetness are perfectly complemented by the rum and citrus juices.


Feel free to experiment and adapt this recipe to suit your preferences. You can add an extra dash of dried fig liqueur if you prefer it sweeter, or adjust the proportions of the ingredients to get the perfect balance for maximum enjoyment of this cocktail.


We hope you'll try this delicious and refreshing rum and dried fig cocktail recipe. Surprise your loved ones with this unique drink full of intense and exquisite flavours. Cheers!
