Passoã is a passion fruit flavoured liqueur launched in the Netherlands in 1986. The matt black Passoã bottle features a brightly coloured tropical motif of palm trees suggesting its tropical fruit taste. Originally 20% alc./vol., Passoã's alcohol strength was reduced to 17% in 2005.
Said to use "Brazilian passion fruit as its base flavour" but the back label lists Passoã's ingredients as being: "water, alcohol, sugar, reconstituted passion fruit juice from Brazil (2%), flavours including passion fruits) acidify regulator E331 acid, citric acid, stabilizer E445, colours E122 and E102."
