Pure honey is like a travel guide to fascinating places all over the world. It enables us to discover the natural taste of each region in a very convenient way -
spoon by spoon. From the North of Finland to the South of Greece, we have carefully selected honeys and partnered with local beekeepers to offer you the most enjoyable and unique delights. This
range will be extended step by step over the next months!
Please find the detailed description of all these items in our webshop below.
Our range of Austrian honeys is mainly based on the competence and passion of one migrant beekeeper, bee expert and book author: Johannes Gruber. During long and
intense discussions as well as many "real" excursions into the Austrian honey world, we listened, learned and finally listed some of the most exciting honeys that the fascinating diversity of
Austrian landscapes and beekeeping skills offer.
Here comes one of the most powerful forest honeys we've ever tasted in the Alpine region. The bee hives are located in the Stuhleck region, about 1250m asl, where the weather changes quickly and dramatically. The dark brown honey remains liquid for a long time; it offers a unique rich and strong taste spectrum inclunding wet leather and musk. A honey for the passionate honey enthusiast. Organic.
This is another forest honey specialty of Johannes Gruber. It is harvested from hives located in a very remote area of the Steiermark, close to spruce forests at an altitude of 700m asl. Beekeeping in this region has already been done by his father, and Johannes surely knows how to turn this long experiencs and his own competence and passion into an outstanding spruce forest honey.
There are many fascinating honey varieties in France, especially in the South. Lavender honey is surely one of the best known and typical honeys, and we're happy to include this unique taste experience in our international range.
We always wanted to know how honey from the Northern regions of Europe tastes. Now we were able to combine the search for outstanding Northern honey and the love
for islands with this wonderful Parainen island flower honey.
There are more than 10'000 small islands in the Southwest of Finland, remote and untouched in their natural beauty. This honey is made by beekeeper Nora Mäntysaari, a very passionate and skilled female beekeeper who has already won several awards for her top-quality-honeys.
