Since 1983, El Tio Picho and his family have produced the finest honey, royal jelly, pollen and other bee-based nutritional products in all of Spain, and perhaps even the world. Once you meet El Tio Picho himself you’ll understand why. For him, beekeeping is not just a family business spanning three generations – it’s a pure, poetic and artistic expression of life itself.
The Spanish Red is Proud to Present El Tio Picho in the USA
In 2011, El Tio Picho’s “Pichin Real” won 1st Prize in the “Fused Drinks” category at the First National Beverage Fair held in Caceres, Spain. In 2013, Tio Picho also received quite a bit of attention across Europe, particularly in Germany and Italy, with offers to mass produce and distribute their products internationally.
But El Tio Picho flatly refused. He’s interested only in continuing the craft he’s followed for 30+ years. In fact, that was his only request to us when we asked for permission to promote El Tio Picho here in the USA. He told us, “Please, always stay true to the story and craft of El Tio Picho”.
Tio Picho’s products include honey, pollen and royal jelly but there are also a number of excellent liquors such as Pichin Real as well as honey-derived natural cosmetics.
All products are 100% organic and ecologically grown, no additives, no artificial anything. And, if you happen visit Tio Picho himself at his weekly street vending stand in Las Mestas, Extremadura, you’ll find not only the finest selection of honey products anywhere, but you’ll probably get a spontaneous recital of poetry straight from the man himself.
