Libatius Borage was a South American wizard, widely considered "one of the world's most famous potioneers".[2] In his youth, he attended the wizarding school of Castelobruxo, in Brazil.[2]

Among his many published works are Advanced Potion-Making, Asiatic Anti-Venoms and Have Yourself a Fiesta in a Bottle![2] — the first and second of which are used at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as a textbook for N.E.W.T.-level classes,[3] and as a reference text for O.W.L.-level classes,[4] respectively.

Despite Borage's accomplishments, Hogwarts Potions Master Severus Snape seemed to be more adept at potion-making than even him, adding many footnotes to his own copy edition of Borage's book, significantly improving it.

Etymology

Libatius Borage's name probably derived from libation, a ritual offering of drink to the gods, and Borage, an edible herb believed to bestow excitement and courage in the hearts of those who consumed it.
