It is made in Alentejo (Southern Portugal) by the local subspecie of honey bees, Apis mellifera iberiensis. These bees work during Spring and Summer, gathering nectar from the annual wildflowers that sprout in Alentejo's dehesa. Unlike industrial honey packagers, DrApis does not mix honey to normalize batches. Thus, honey colour and flavour will change with every new harvest. During Spring our honey is light coloured with a delicate and mild flavour, derived from a floral source dominated by clovers (Trifolium spp.), wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) and lavender (Lavandula stoechas luisieri). As we reach the end of Summer, honey gets darker and acquires a bolder and richer flavour, coming from the nectar of late blooming flowers, mostly thistles (Cynara spp.) and pennyroyal (Mentha pulegium).
