No two honeys taste the same

Every honey tastes different: each is a snapshot in time capturing the unique combination of plants visited to make the honey. Like wine, the flavours vary enormously.  They can be:

Caramel: a strong hint of toffee, creme brulee, vanilla, maple etc.

Fruity: a strong hint of fruits such as blackberry, currant,  lemon, lime, fig, dried fruits, cherry etc.

Floral: a strong hint of jasmine, rose, lavender, lilac etc.

Nutty: a strong hint of pecan, walnut, almond, hazelnut etc.

Spicya strong hint of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, liquorice etc.

Fresh: a strong hint of clover, mint, eucalyptus etc.

Tasting the honeys

We're thrilled to be working with Mike's Table: Louise (in the middle below), a wine buyer by trade, tastes each of our honeys giving me fabulous descriptions of each one. In return we donate honey to Mike's Table, a pop up, social enterprise, restaurant with full paying diners funding the same meal and experience for others less lucky than them the next night.
