Have you heard about the famous Medronho in Monchique sierra?
The Medronho brandy is part of the cultural and gastronomic identity of the village of Monchique and represents a secular tradition that has been passed on religiously from generation to generation. For many years, most Monchiquean families, especially the oldest ones, made their own Medronho brandy.
How, then, is this precious nectar produced?
Each individual has it own way of making it, but the manufacturing process is basically the same and did not changed with the legalization of distilleries, neither with the passing of testimony from generations.
