August 11, 2019 We are happy - the alpuris babies are born! It took us a long time to find small one-portion-glasses which fit the quality of the products we are offering in these glasses. Here they are, and we are even more happy that we immediatley found a customer who cares as much as we do about local, high-quality products from small manufacturers. The Swiss Panoramic Gourmet AG is now using our straw- and blackberry jams as well as an Alpine blossom honey in their wonderful Panoramic trains that cross the Alps between Valais and Grisons - another perfect fit!
This glass size (22 - 28g per glass depending on the content) is especially designed for the gastronomic, hotel and event business, but it can be used for private events as well. BTW: The honey is exclusively produced for alpuris by beekeeper David Conradin from his Lüsai black bee hives (1920m asl), and the jam is made by Nicolo Paganini at his fruit farm and agriturismo in Campascio - always worth a visit!
August 5, 2019 We're back from an exciting road trip to visit our beekeepers in the Val Müstair and Engiadina region, where we were able to pick up the new harvest.
- The Lüsai black bee honey from Val Müstair (organic BioSuisse) which is exclusively produced for alpuris
- An awesome Alpine blossom honey which is new in our range. It is produced in the village of Tschlin (1500m asl)
Both honeys can now be ordered in our Webshop - enjoy!
July 29, 2019 What a discovery! We always loved hiking in the Bernese Oberland, especially in the Lenk/Simmental region. During one of these hikes we discovered the wonderful traditional Swiss bee house of Markus Zbären close to Lenk, and after some interesting discussions and a tasting of his new harvest we knew that we had to have this unique Alpine blossom honey in our range. An irresistable, broad, intense taste of wild Alpine meadows (bees collect nectar up to 2400m asl starting from 1000m), a golden color and the option to add a creamed version of his honey to the normal variety. We couldn't think of anything else we'd wished for... This honey can be ordered as from the end of August in our Webshop.
July 22, 2019 It was a tough and depressing Spring time in many parts of Switzerland, including the Jura mountains. Due to the cold and wet weather conditions, there was no Spring honey to be harvested. Nethertheless, alpuris is happy to present you a truly wonderful, rich and intense Summer honey from the Jura mountains (Les Bois is located at 1000m asl amidst the Nature Park Doubs). Beekeeper Jacques Willemin reserved a very small batch of his best honey for us, which is now on sale - don't miss it...
