The Gourmet Basket brings together excellent products, from the Algarve, between the mountains and the coast. Selected with those who enjoy exquisite tasting experiences and the discovery of new aromas and textures that impress the senses.

Every corner of the Algarve has its characteristic products. From the coast, which is fruit and fish farming, open to the Mediterranean since ancient times, we find here the cities of Vila Real de Santo António, Tavira, Faro, Albufeira, Portimão, Lagos and Sagres. Moving on to the Barrocal (inlands), which is characterized by gentle ravines, where almond trees, fig trees, carob trees, olive trees and citrus fruits are grown, we are talking about Castro Marim, Loulé, Querença, Salir, Alte, S.B. Messines and Silves among others. Finally the Mountains, with the Serras de Monchique to the West, the Serra de Espinhaço de Cão and the Serra do Caldeirão to the East, forming a barrier that naturally separates the Algarve from the rest of Portuguese territory. Here we find a predominance of blackthorn and strawberry trees, from which the famous medronho brandy is obtained, which is still produced today using ancestral methods, like the one you will find in this basket. An Organic Medronho Brandy, selected and harvested by hand deep inside the Serra do Caldeirão. Algarve Orange Liqueur is produced regionally in Silves using traditional methods. With a sweet and light flavor, it is perfect served chilled, chilled or with a piece of ice to accompany a dessert or confectionery.
The original honey and piri-piri liqueur with fig brandy was born in Albufeira. This is a liqueur intended only for the most fearless, those who dare to face the challenge of tasting a bold and intriguing mixture. Dare to enjoy a unique sensory experience that mixes sweet and spicy in a typical Algarve liqueur.

Our olive oils continue to be produced by hand, and the olives continue to be picked by hand and transported immediately to the mill. The result is a rich and authentic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is part of the rich Mediterranean diet. We offer the best Algarve olive oil options, you just need to choose according to your gastronomic preferences.
And figs and oranges are also part of the traditional diet of the Algarve population. When fresh, they are used as dessert fruit or in jams and sweets. This Fig Jam and Orange Jam found in the Gourmet Basket are made with figs produced in-house in the Guia area of Albufeira and oranges from the Tavira area. Dried figs are used in the rich and varied Algarve sweets, such as these Estrelas or Morgado de Figo e Amêndoa, made at home in the traditional way and with products produced in-house in São Bartolomeu de Messines. And as expected, we have the famous and delicious Doce Fino with an almond base from the Algarve.

Moving further northeast of the Algarve, in the municipality of Alcoutim is Monte do Zambujal, a hidden place where mountain customs and the preservation of know-how combine, resulting in excellent products full of tradition. This is the case with this Iberian Pork Ham, raised in freedom and with natural food. No additives, no preservatives and 100% natural. Not forgetting the Painho and black pork chorizo made in Serra do Caldeirão.
As you may have noticed, the Gourmet Basket takes you on a real journey. The Serra Algarvia takes us to the border with the Alentejo and is located between the Barrocal and the Algarve coast. Between rounded peaks, rivers, canals and streams, the landscape presents us with many of the most characteristic species of southern Portugal. From this panorama rich in flavors and knowledge that is passed down from generation to generation, the most authentic and emblematic delicacies are produced, which are the portrait of an affectionate and welcoming people towards all those who wish to get to know them.
