Please find the detailed description of all these items in our webshop below.
Note: All of these natural honeys are of limited availability and thus it might happen that some of them are sold out before the next harvest arrives. New honeys start to come in from July to September depending on the harvest time in the different regions. We are sorry for this situation but we do hope that our customers understand the circumstances and the limitations given by truly natural and small scale productions.

This unique honey has been created in an exclusive cooperation with Gion Grischott. It
expresses our aim to unite all the floral treasures of the region in one glass of honey. At an altitude of 1900 m above sea level, in the remote Avers valley, the bees can benefit from an
extraordinary choice of both alpine roses and the rich flowery meadows of the natural preserve Beverin. Definitley worth trying... Demeter & BioSuisse-certified.
This honey from the dandelion meadows close to the village of Pignia, Canton Grisons, has been stirred "just to the point of perfection" as beekeeper Gion Grischott says. Now it's creamy and remains like this for years - ready for all honey gourmets. This honey has a soft texture with a strong, bright and fresh yellow color. The bees made it mostly from dandelion blossom nectar, and one can clearly see and taste this. BioSuisse organic and demeter. Swiss BioGourmet and international Honey Quality award in gold! Simply amazing.
Note: 2018 harvest is sold out. 2019 harvest is expected end of June.
This is an unique alpine rose honey - as pure as it can get. A few days after the harvest, it's liquid with a light yellow color, absolutely clear. Once it is cristallized, as all natural honeys do over time, it has a bright white color like I've never seen with any other honey. The taste is pure alpine roses, like a greating from the heights of Alp Niemet where the bees collected their nectar. Organic and demeter. BioGourmet award! A true gourmet treat worth exploring for all honey lovers.
This honey from beekeeper Martin Dettli is the Swiss reference honey for the pure alpine rose variety. Travelling beekeeper, bee researcher and lecturer Martin Dettli produces this honey at the remote heights of Andermatt close to the St. Gotthard pass, Canton Uri. A typical pale, light yellow color with the mild clear sweetness of alpine roses. Demeter-quality.
The bee colonies of Matteo Dell’Andrino are located in the Southern Alps where the chestnut tree line meets the flowery alpine meadows. This specific mixture of vegetation is a feast for the bees and honey lovers alike. Canton Ticino.
Main source :
chestnut and lime trees, alpine flowers. A typical chestnut flavor balanced with mild lime and a mix of alpine flowers. Organic with BioSuisse
Thanks to Milo Zanecchia for the beautiful photos from Val Colla!
Beekeeper Stefan Manser lives at the very end of a valley in Glarus surrounded by impressive and high mountains. The Swiss Canton Glarus has strict regulations to protect the native black bees, apis mellifera mellifera, since the 1970's. Stefan's summer honey has a broad and rich taste, and a very smooth pallate. Main source: flowery alpine meadows.
The honey of Claudio Gianotti has been awarded the gold medal at the OLMA St. Gallen expo for it's unique quality and taste. Claudio is a beekeeper since decades and surely knows the best places at his home village Promontogno in Bergell to produce a wonderfull, very rich blossom honey with hints of lime and a great subtle balance of fresh citric and sweet tastes. A truly special delight. Canton Grisons.
This honey stems from a remote and beautiful natural reserve, the Diemtigtal, located in the Bernese Oberland. Beekeeper Christoph Wissler is dedicated to the native black bees and puts all of his efforts into the conservation and care of this special species. The yield of black bee honey is lower than other bee species, but they are able to fly higher and collect nectar even at low temperatures from a wider range of flowers and trees. In the pictures you can see the wooden home for the bees which was built by hand by Christoph's father, as well as the group of local beekeepers taking care of black bees (Christoph is on the left). There is also a picture of the Diemtigtal landscape where our honey is made.
A sweet and mild honey, made of nectar from flowery alpine meadows and wild raspberry blossoms.
A broad range of wild flower blossoms with hints of silver fir honeydew makes this honey a unique treat. Due to the dry climate the honey harvest is especially low in the alpine regions of Valais, and we are very happy that we can offer you this rarity.
This honeydew honey of Beat Schärli stems from a nature preserve. It is collected from an Entlebuch silver fir forest - but not every year, as it takes special climate conditions to allow a sufficient honeydew source for the bees to produce this dark brown, rich and intense forest honey. One of the great pillars of Swiss Alpine Honeys. Canton Lucerne.
This organic, rich and flavorsome alpine summer honey is harvested from beehives at about 1000 m a.s.l. After the harvest, Mareika Schäfer carefully takes her time to stir the honey during a couple of weeks - right to the point where it remains creamy for a very long time. Organic BioSuisse, Canton Ticino.
Val Poschiavo is a remote and very green, natural valley in the South of Switzerland. There are mighty mountains like the Piz Palü with an altitude of 3900 m, and also villages like Campocologno at a low altitude of 550 m (i.e. low for Switzerland...). The valley stretches from the Berninapass to the Italian border and has three different climate zones - a true discovery for everyone interested in nature and culture! Beekeeper Diego Lardelli produces a powerful summer blossom honey, with influence of buckwheat blossoms (as shown in the images), and flavors that include alpine roses from higher altitudes.
Beekeeper David Conradin inherited the love for bees from his father who started keeping bees in the 1950s. Now father and son work together to produce this
wonderful black bee honey within the Val Müstair UNESCO Biosphere reservation, Canton Grisons, and the Swiss National Park. Main source: alpine roses. A golden honey with smooth, broad and sweet
finishing. Organic. These bee hives are located at a sunny terrace in an altitude of 1920m and the honey is produced exclusively! for our customers.
We discovered this hidden treasure on a hike to Tschlin, a breathtakingly beautiful place at about 1500 m altitude (don't miss it if you are near, Tschlin has been awarded the most beautiful Swiss village...). As always, we asked the local food store for their best honey - but there was not a single glass left, all sold out shortly after the harvest. However, we never give up when we are after honey treasures... So we asked if there were any beekeepers living in the village, and then we went from door to door to ask all of them - well, there are only three - for remaining honey. And we were lucky enough to buy one of the last glasses from Linard Caviezel, a beekeeper living at the highest point of the village. The taste of his honey is simply overwhelming, rich and pure at the same time, the alpine summer and untouched flowering meadows caught in a glass. Bun Tschlin, as the locals say! From now on you can buy this outstanding alpine honey at alpuris.
This honey from Pierre Froidevaux at the small village of Le Noirmont offers a broad range of multifloral flavors, from dandelion to blackberry blossoms, including many many others. The remote and unspoiled landscape of the Doubs Nature Park in the upper Jura is the nectar source for the bees who live at about 1000 m a.s.l. Intense yellow color, rich taste and sweetness.
The remote and unspoiled landscape of the Doubs Nature Park in the upper Jura is an invitation for long hikes. Flowery meadows spread among dark fir and spruce forests, and the river Doubs runs through this quiet and peaceful setting. We have chosen this honey for its unique balance between very mild honeydew and floral tastes.
Very limited availability. Martin Dettli is an experienced and highly respected international bee expert. As a travelling beekeeper he finds the best places in
