Raw Lavender Honey - 1kg
Ramon's raw lavender honey is a superbly unique tasting variety. It has a prominent taste of fresh Mediterranean tomatoes, the sweet kind, bursting with natural flavour. It has also has a very warming and balanced taste of lavender and a tartness that lingers long after eating, I feel this is one of the best tasting types, superb in every way.
More on the flavour: This is a beautiful tasting herb flower honey, with a very pleasing and warm flavour, almost like Mediterranean tomatoes and exotic flowers, such a unique palette. This comes from bees feeding from lavender bushes in the Mediterranean area, different from the tree sap honey which is often dark in appearance and strong in taste, this honey tends to be mild, lighter and softer in taste.
Colour: This particular honey is a light shade of red, going orange to red when setting.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of lavender 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.
Who produces this honey?: This lavender honey comes from Uncle Ramon, a friendly hip beekeeper with a passion for traditional methods of honey production. Ramon produces a wide variety of different honey, all completely raw with nothing added or taken away.
What about the tree the honey comes from? The lavender plant is an herbaceous perennial shrub also known as espliego in Spanish. It tends to be short lived and has a wide amount of varieties in its genus. It is widely used as an essential oil in aromatherapy and is known to help relax and assist in better sleep and stress management.
Common Uses: Lavender honey is particularly good to use as a skin care treatment to heal burns, cuts, abrasions and infections. It is also very versatile in different recipes, such as: a glaze for meats, with salads, cakes, flapjacks, breads pastas and teas.

What our Customers Say:
The lavender honey had the most lovely flavour - unlike any honey I've ever tasted. I took a tablespoon before bed and really think it helped give me a good nights sleep plus soothed my sore throat.
Your raw honey is truly delicious! Very smooth and subtle taste, I bought the lavender and it is not overpowering even added to tea/coffee. Thank you for such a great product.
Roz Anderson, Crawley
I'm very happy with the lavender honey, beautiful flavour. I will be buying the chestnut after tasting a sample as my wife comes from the Pyrenees and loves chestnut. I am a bee keeper in my first full year.
