Description

Prize Winner in the Great Taste Awards 2020

According to the judges: "A lovely pale gold tone and lightly runny texture. There's a delightful, upfront spring flower flavour, certainly blossomy. Moderate length, with light vanilla." and "Big aroma, grassy hay notes. Floral notes, gentle tang. Very moreish honeys. Certainly delivers on flavour. Clear with good viscosity."


Raw, unpasteurised, all natural & incredibly tasty.

Pyrenees honey has a very light taste of creamy vanilla and light flower blossoms.

This honey is an attractive light shade of amber.

Pyrenees mountain honey is much sought after due to its higher quality and beautiful taste.

Rossend's raw Pyrenees Mountain honey has a very light taste of creamy vanilla and light flower blossoms. One of the most popular varieties due to its clean refreshing flavour. It is suitable for all of the family.  It achieved a 3-Star Superior Taste Award in the 2016 International Taste and Quality Institute awards. The iTQi is a world-renowned organisation of chefs and sommeliers.

More on the flavour: This is a very beautiful tasting multifloral mountain honey, it has a deep and soothing creaminess that has many people addicted. It has a gentle floral sweetness and hints of fruits and berries in the distance. It comes from bees feeding on the trees, bushes and plants in the Pyrenees Mountains. When the bees feed on plants at higher altitude it is said they get a higher quality of honey as the air is cleaner, the land unspoiled and the soils richer in nutrients for the plants that grow on them.

Colour: This particular honey is a light shade of amber.

Where does the honey come from? This variety of Pyrenees honey comes from Catalonia in Spain. The Catalonian Pyrenees are known for their pristine forests, high peaks and heavenly meadows, rushing rivers, winding streams and thundering waterfalls.

Who produces the honey? This Pyrenees honey comes from Rossend. He treats honey like and art form and you can really tell, it has such a perfect consistency and the varieties range from very subtle to very overt. He has won many awards for his honey including from the well renowned iTQi (International Taste and Quality Institute) who rated several of his honey varieties in the superior taste award category.

What about the plants the honey comes from?: From an analysis of the honey the bees were shown to be feeding on these plants, from order of highest content to lowest: Lotus corniculatis (Birds foot trefoil), Thyme, Pear, Alpine clover, Backenklee, Oregano, Lavender, Wild blackberry, Chestnut, Buckthorn, Rosemary, Rhododendron, Sainfoin, Hawthorn, Mountain bluet and Calluna (Ling Heather).

Common Uses: Pyrenees honey is particularly good to use in different recipes, such as: salads, an accompaniment with cheeses, adding to meat as a glaze and beautiful in a light herbal tea.

Honey Facts: Pyrenees mountain honey is much sought after. Any honey that comes from the mountain areas is often in higher demand, this is often due to the higher quality and the beautiful taste it has.

 

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.

Nice subtle delight

Not long been into proper raw honey, so I'm amazed at all the different deep tastes and textures and consistencies, this honey is runny and appears like supermarket honey, tastes very nice but not like some of the more characterful ones on the menu, still I've tried it in a smoothie and it's pretty delicious, definitely recommended

Best acacia honey I've ever tried

I've only tried the acacia one so far. It is the best acacia honey I've tried. It smells so clean and yet richer than any other acacia honey I've tried. I recently bought some raw honey from a market stall, sold as "organic" yet on questioning they use antibiotics and feed their bees sugar in the winter. This market stall honey had an offensive smell, and some honeys from the supermarkets also have this smell, which I understand is probably from a diseased hive, but I used to think this was a normal honey smell. Your honey is nothing like this. It was reassuring for me to know that your honey bees are not fed sugar in the winter and no antibiotics are used. The honey speaks for itself. I won't be buying honey from anywhere else from now.
