Wild Lavender Honey with Jute Cover

This honey is produced in the mountains in the interior of Portugal (Beira Baixa) where the bees collect this light coloured and delicate honey from the flowers of wild lavender ( Lavandula stoechas ).
Traditional methods were used in its production and extraction.


Back in 1898, Jorge de Almeida Lima acquires and explores his first beehives in Quinta do Lameiro, his country estate in Benfica, outskirts of Lisbon. In 1974, intent on starting a beekeeping activity, his great great grandchildren decide to restore the old hives.

First in Quinta do Lameiro and, since 1979, in Serra da Malcata, installing their company in Penamacor.

This Wild Lavender Honey is produced in the mountains of the interior of Portugal, where bees find vast areas of wild lavender (Lavandula stoechas) integrated in a flora and fauna almost intact, thanks to the low human activity and absence of pollution.

From Serra da Malcata to the south, along the hills that flank the Pônsul and Erges rivers, in the interior of Alentejo and in the mountains of Algarve and, to the north, on the banks of the Coa river and in the mountainous regions between the rivers Tua and Sabor (Trás-os-Montes), Serramel produces and selects this clear and aromatic honey. Its production and extraction are done by traditional means.
