Raw Mountain Honey - 4.7kg
Raw, natural and one of the purest honeys because of the remote area it comes from.
Antibacterial, coarse-filtered, unpasteurised, and enzyme-rich.
Because of the shorter season in the mountain there is less of this honey available and thus it is more expensive than other honeys.
Alvaro's Raw Mountain Honey starts with a dark, black tea tannin-like foretaste, easing into a very sweet and delicious main taste. 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 dark honey going ruby-red in the light.
Where does the honey come from?: This variety of mountain honey comes from a Biosphere Reserve in Rioja in Spain, a largely untouched, wild and diverse region in central to north Spain. The soil here is very rich and his hives are well away from sources of pollution in the national parks.
Who produces this honey?: This honey comes from Alvaro, a beekeeper with a passion for producing raw honey of the very highest quality. His honeys have a full, rich flavour typical of many products from the region. Most of his products are certified as organic.
What about the plants the honey comes from? These can include chestnut, heather and oak as well as blackberry and various herbs, like rosemary and wild lavender. The trees exude a sweet sap which the bees feed on, sometimes with the help of aphids who drill into the tree bark allowing the sap to flow out more freely. Some also produce strongly-scented blossoms, which the bees love.
Common Uses: Mountain 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.
Mountain Honey Facts: Mountain honey tends to be a honey that is furthest away from sources of pollution, so is one of the purest honeys available. It's moisture content tends to be lower as well due to the lower levels of humidity in mountainous areas.

Expecting runny but received crystal not that much happy this time.
Something new under the Sun to me.
Being instinctively faint hearted, I was easily put off in the past from trying any honey labelled as strongly flavoured. An uncharacteristic wave of adventure washed over me when selecting my recent choice and I'm very glad it did so. The Raw Mountain Honey is a revelation of positive, distinctive voluptuous flavour. To think that I almost missed out on my new, favourite honey. Well, well.
Good and thick.
Non runny honey just the trick for piling high on your bread!
Fresh abd tastey
It's quite good honey
I was impatient waiting for the Honey. When it arrived, I was not displeased. It was flavoursome and delighted. The service was great and an all round great experience. Never again going to the store and purchasing honey! Kind regards, Mohamed.
