Raw Mountain Honey - 1kg
David's Raw Mountain Honey has a lovely, mild caramel foretaste, which opens into a tropical floral aroma and finishes by settling into a slight burnt sugar bitterness. Finishes with an aftertaste reminiscent of tea tannin.
Colour: This mountain honey is a beautiful dark amber colour, which shows a deep orange in the light.
Origin: This raw mountain honey comes from the beautiful and unspoiled Galician mountains of Os Ancares and O Courel in the northwestern corner of Spain. These honeys are all produced at altitudes of over 500m above sea level.
Raw mountain honey is gathered from a wide range of forest plants typical to the region, including chestnut, oak, heather, brambles, and other blossoms.
Mountain honey facts: Bees kept at higher altitudes will have a much shorter period of time within which to gather nectar and make honey before the seasons change. This makes high altitude honeys rarer due to their smaller supply. Mountain honeys also tend to have a slightly thicker consistency due to their low moisture content.
Please know that raw honey does crystalise 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.
