In Alqueva, a space was born that makes a difference due to its tribute to the region. We are waiting for you...
The museum has a permanent exhibition that aims to make the Medronho known: A characterization of the plant and the fruit, its life cycle, economic and ecological value and forestry that will end in the process of distilling the fruit and its product - the well-known arbutus brandy
Medronho brandies produced in the museum's distillery are on sale at the store year-round. You can, however, taste them and certify the quality of the spirits before buying it.

The Medronho Museum in Alqueva, a mandatory stop in the region.
For lovers of typically Portuguese drinks based on the arbutus fruit and wildlife enthusiasts, this will undoubtedly be a place to be taken into account. Here you will have the opportunity to go on a safari through the cork oak forest, among various wild species, but also get to know a little more about this small reddish fruit, which will be presented to you from several different species.
With scheduled visits and during the fruit ripening season, it is possible to monitor and watch the various stages of the production of the distillate: from picking the fruit, to fermentation, distillation and bottling.
I would like to thank you for your speed and professionalism! I placed an order on Sunday and with a holiday in the middle I received the order on Tuesday (today)! After visiting your museum 2 years ago we became fans! We've been trying to pay you a visit again but it's been a very complicated 2 years... We hope to return soon! Thank you very much!
