Our

pleasure

to

invite

you

to

unveil

some

secrets

of

the

traditional

art

of

the

Medronho

distillery! And honey too!

As

we

all

know,every

country

seems

always

to

have

a

drink

or

a

product

associated

to

old

rituals

and

precepts

that

have

passed

from

hand

to

hand.Medronho

grows

wild,as

a

fruit,especially

in

the

Northern

Algarve

and

Alentejo.

The

name

,arbutus

unedo,

is

commonly

translated

as

strawberry

tree

but

the

drink

does

not

taste

to

strawberries

at

all.It

is

actually

a

fruit

brandy

strong spirit with an alcohol content which varies between 40 and 50%.

A

commercial

derivative,

sweetened

with

honey

and

flavoured

with

herbs,

is

sold

under the brand name Brandymel.

This

day

is

dedicated

to

see

and

understand

how

the

art

is

kept

alive

by

some

people

who

never

gave

up,in

spite

of

the

fires

of

the

summer

that

decimated

many

medronho

trees

in

Serra

de

Monchique.Regarding

the

honey,

beekeeping

is

an

art

and

the

Algarveans

have

it

down

pat.

And

so

they

should,

considering

they

have

been

doing

it

for

centuries.

In

fact,

honey

making

in

the

Algarve

dates

back

to

Roman

times;

since

the

16th

century

honey

has

been

produced

in

the

Algarve

as a business and continues to be an important part of the local economy.

In supermarkets is mostly mass-manufactured, processed and pasteurised

.

Most people buy honey without realising the labour that’s involved.

So, time to taste!
