Ramon's raw chestnut honey is a luxurious, dark and bold honey. It has a deep, malty flavour and a caramel-like sweetness, which many people love. This is one of our richest types of honey, with some comparing it to treacle.

Tree honeys tends to be well-suited to those wo like complex, rich flavours.

Where does the honey come from? This variety of chestnut honey comes from Aragon in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse landscape close to the French border at the north and borders with Valencia to the south.

What about the tree the honey comes from? The chestnut tree also known as Castanea or Castano in Spanish is a large deciduous tree which produces edible nuts. The bees love to feed on the sap that comes from the tree as well as the blossoms that it produces. The tree lends a beautiful and unique taste to the honey, the nutty flavour carries through as well as a taste a little similar to maple syrup but slightly more rich and malty. Chestnut can lend a bitter taste to honey but not always, it is known to be one of the most varied types of honey in taste, differing considerably from one area to another.
Honey Facts: Chestnut honey is higher in fructose than other types, this serves as good source of energy. Hence, a spoon of chestnut honey helps to relieve fatigue immediately.
