Raw, Unpasteurised & Incredibly Tasty.
Caramel taste with a touch of fruitiness and subtle malt undertones.
Dark brown in colour going slightly red, like dark amber in sunlight.
Produced in the untouched landscape of the ancient Spanish kingdom of Aragon.
Ramon's Raw Mediterranean Oak honey is a unique type amongst the tree varieties. It has a caramel taste with a touch of fruitiness as well as the subtle malt flavour that is more common with tree honey.
More on the flavour: This is a rich and fruity tasting tree honey. It has a rich and sweet malty flavour along with slightly earthy notes. Tree honey tends to be dark and is less likely to set due to a relatively low glucose content.
Colour: This particular honey is brown in colour, slightly red in the light like dark amber.
Please note that the colour of the current batch of raw oak honey is slightly lighter than indicated in the photo above. This is due to the natural seasonal variations typical of all raw honey.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of oak 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 oak variety 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 Oak tree also known as Encina in Spanish is an evergreen tree which is part of the beech family. It tends to be smaller than the oak trees we are used to. The bees love to feed on a sap that comes from the acorns in late summer. The tree lends a beautiful and unique taste to the honey, a noticeable full flavour with fruity and malty notes.
Common Uses: Oak honey is good to use in recipes such as cakes, cookies, desert toppings, ice creams, warm honey teas, salads and meat glazes. This is because of its warm, balsamic flavour.
Oak Honey Facts: Oak honey comes from the acorns of the oak tree. The bees collect a sweet nectar that the acorns weep in July and August and create a unique type of honey. Other types of tree honey are produced from the residue left by the activity of aphids on trees but this is not the case with the oak honey. The bees directly collect the sweet fluid from the acorns. It tends to be less sweet but very potent.
Please know that raw honey does crystallise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to Wikipedia.

Fantastic, I love this honey. Until now I have bought supermarket honey, however I wanted a honey which is unadulterated, and which comes from a clean environment. This honey tastes great, and feels as if it has just come from the hive. I have nearly finished the 1kg jar (all by myself ). I can certainly and wholeheartedly recommend this company, and the honey which they supply.
Fir the first time I am brewing my own mead. As it is my first batch it should be something special. My first idea was to use chestnut honey from the Cevennes. But that would be too expensive. I opted to try this dark oak honey and it hads not dissapointed me. It 's sweet, it's woody and deep. I cannot wait until the mead is ready to taste how it turned out with this amazing flavourfull honey.
I love this honey so much that I am becoming addicted to it. It taste so nice and fruity and the feel of it on the tongue is smooth and velvety. Thank you Raw Honey Shop, your honey is one of the best.
