Monte do Mouchão Honey

Monte do Mouchão honey is made in the wilds of the Alto Alentejo region of Portugal. The undulating cork forests, interspersed with olive groves, eucalyptus and umbrella pines are also home to hardy shrubs such as gum cistus, rock rose, lavender, broom and oleander which can withstand the harsh inland Mediterranean climate. The pollen from these flowers forms the basis of this naturally pure honey and is complemented by an abundant variety of wild spring flowers native to the Iberian Peninsula such as poppy, chamomile, lupin, clover, iris, pimpernel, viper's bugloss, chicory and sorrel.
