Andorra's high-quality meat is a benchmark in gastronomy, thanks to the best-kept secret of the Andorran livestock farmers: namely, tradition. You’ll find beef with the seal of protected geographical indication (GI), as well as ox, lamb, goat and horse meat with the “Meat of Controlled Quality from Andorra” seal. One company whose products bear this seal is Poltrand, which specialises, as its name in Catalan indicates, in horse meat. At the Principality’s many points of sale and restaurants you can enjoy the fruits of the years of hard work carried out by the Association of Andorran Livestock Farmers. Look for the seal and certificate that distinguish and guarantee the Meat of Andorra!

Cured meats are an important part of our gastronomic produce. A respect for tradition, adherence to the methods of preparation handed down from generation to generation, the quality of the ingredients, and the natural conditions of our environment all combine to produce botifarres, llonganisses, bull and other handmade specialities of the highest quality, such as those made by Cal Jordi and Els Escaubells, which can be found in specialised establishments. 

Cheese is also one of the country's artisanal products. Using sheep's milk as its original ingredient, Casa Raubert makes various, exquisite specialist cheeses, traditionally knowns as shepherd's cheeses.

The altitude and the well-tended land produce treasures such as vegetables and legumes.These products are the result of a commitment to the environment and to organic growing practices that prevent the use of chemical pesticides or herbicides. Houses with a long agricultural tradition such as Can Sona and Cortals Llumeneres, sell seasonal vegetables and produce and organic eggs, among other local products. The company Biobo also works in a similar field, preparing traditional dishes using organic products.

Local aromatic plants and medicinal herbs, among which new varieties for culinary use or infusions are sold, such as mint, hyssop, wild thyme, oregano and orange blossom. At Pocions de Lluna Nova, these plants and herbs are used to create artisan cosmetic products using traditional methods. Meanwhile, Capricho de Luna makes soaps using the ancient technique of cold saponification.

Organic jams are produced by El Rebost del Padrí, Casa Gendret and El Pastador following traditional recipes and use only local fruit such as forest fruits, strawberries, raspberries and other types of berry. Mountain honey is a high-quality product manufactured by various artisanal companies, including Casa FolchNaturalis and Autèntic. The different locations and altitudes of their beehives, spread across our regions, lend a wide variety of flavours and textures to the honey products they sell.

In Andorra, you can also enjoy the pleasure of the Aztec gods, chocolate, with a local artisanal stamp. Xocland makes and sells products using top-quality cocoa beans imported from geographical regions with the best protected designations of origin, with a whole host of specialist products that you can sample and buy in their workshop and in specialist stores. 

Nectum is the ideal condiment for salads, white meats and cheeses. It is a natural syrup made from silver fir pine cones and has a texture that is similar to honey. It is also used as a base for preparing various sauces and jams. El Rebost del Padrí has been producing and selling Nectum since 2003.

Andorran wines are the fruit of years of hard work by wineries such as Borda Sabaté 1944, Casa Beal, Casa Auvinyà and Mas Berenguer, which have learned how to get the most out of the harshness and altitude of our region. Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Albariño are just a few of the varieties to be found among their selection of wines. Sign up for enotourism in Andorra.

Andorra has become cemented as a place where craft beer is brewed. AlphaBoris and & (And) offer various specialist products made using traditional methods. All of them - pilsner, brown ale, blonde ale, IPA... - have nuances and touches of flavour that give them a unique character and personality. You can taste and buy them in their plants, branch stores and also in various pubs and specialist stores in the Principality.

Ratassia de la Carmeta is a traditional hand-crafted liqueur made from medicinal herbs and walnuts. The recipe has been passed on by the women in the family from one generation to the next.

Wool is the raw material used by Vital to launch its business, rooted in the Andorran livestock tradition. The company manufactures and sells a ‘shepherd’s pillow’ with natural wool fibres from Andorran sheep.
