Honey has always been held in high esteem – and rightly so. It’s often referred to as the ‘food of gods’ and believed to possess virtues of love and happiness. It’s a food source that has stood the test of time and fuels the love story between humans and bees.
WHY QUALITY HONEY MATTERS
Honey’s honey right? Wrong. The squeezy bottles so readily available on a supermarket shelf simply aren’t produced the same. There’s no uniqueness about the taste, no excitement. They’ve all been morphed to taste similar – a taste we’ve been fobbed off with for too long.
WHAT MAKES ALEMANY HONEY SPECIAL?
Bees forage up to 3 miles away from their hives to collect nectar meaning every hive has uniquely tasting honey. Alemany Honey is ideally located in Lleida, Catalunya to deliver us a taste of Spain. Lleida is known for its ancient olive trees, a picturesque mountainous backdrop, fields bursting with fruit trees, and fields of lavender. Tourists to the area experience nature in its purest form.
A BIT ABOUT ALEMANY
This Catalan honey producer can trace its roots back to the late 1800s when their founder, Mrs Mundeta began making turron in her kitchen. Today, they still make soft turron – in fact you’ll find this on our shelves too – but clearly they’re keen to share the secret to their sweet treats – the honey!
Alemany Lavender Honey: Harvested in Castile La Mancha and Aragon during the summer months to capture the floral taste of the breath-taking lavender fields. Delicious on ice-cream
Alemany Orange Blossom Honey: This has a bit of everything; an intense floral aroma combined with a mild yet sweet flavour. All this is balanced by a subtle sharpness and lightly citric notes. Great in both sweet and savoury dishes.
Alemany Chestnut Honey: The result of a summer harvest in Galicia, Burgos and Leon. A visually striking honey with a floral and slightly woody aroma. Amazing when paired with cheese.
