Description

Raw, natural and one of the purest honeys because of the remote area it comes from.

Antibacterial, coarse-filtered, unpasteurised, and enzyme-rich.

This raw Chestnut comes from the Cantabrian Mountains and hills in Asturias, a green and unspoilt area in the north of Spain.

Please note this honey is now past its best before date. (31/12/2020) This is simply an indication that the honey is likely to have crystallised.  It is still completely safe to eat as honey never goes off! 

Please note we cannot accept returns on sale items.

Luisa's Raw Chestnut Honey has deep, full bodied, slightly smoky, earthy tones, that deliver a more savoury taste than most other honeys. It has a bit of bitterness - less than some chestnut honeys, but more than some of our other, more mild chestnuts. It has caramel notes coming in around an essence of deep, black raisins and prunes, leaving a slightly ferrous tingle on the tongue.

The strong overall flavour makes it perfect for those who love dark, strong honeys.

Colour: This honey is a medium brown, ruby-red in the light.

Where does the honey come from?: This variety of chestnut honey comes from Cantabria, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in the north of Spain. Luisa's hives are well away from sources of pollution in the national parks.

Who produces this honey?: This honey comes from Luisa and her daughter Olaya. She is a beekeeper with a passion for producing raw honey of the very highest quality - with a lot of attention to detail. Her honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region.

What about the plants the honey comes from? This comes from the flowers of the Sweet Chestnut Tree. It is known for beinh high in minerals.

Common Uses: Chestnut honey is particularly good to use to aid a sore throat or cough as well as in recipes such as rich cakes and meat glazes.

Chestnut Honey Facts: Chestnut honey tends to be a honey that is furthest away from sources of pollution, so is one of the purest honeys available.
