MUSEUM
OF
ARBUTUS

In Alqueva, a space was born that makes a difference due to its tribute to the region.  We are waiting for you...

The Exposure

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

The Distillery

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 Brandy


A Safari
in the Wild

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.

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!
