Wild about Honey
100% Raw, cold extracted, unfiltered, Wild Lavender honey, is the backbone of the Portuguese honey harvest, known locally as Rosmaninho, This honey is to Portugal what Acacia is to Italy.
Raw Wild lavender honey made from bees foraging on the Lavandula Stoechas plant, a wild ancestor of the cultivated lavenders without the perfumed lavender smell. It grows extensively over the hillsides of many areas of Portugal including the Algarve and Alentejo, where our honey comes from. This particular honey is a medium-sweet, delicate, floral, amber, silky textured honey, with an almost fruity backnote. Very versatile, superb everyday honey. Produced in the Algarve hills by master artisan beekeepers and happy bees. Its hard to beat Rosmaninho.
You can either buy this fabulous honey here or pay 2.5x the price from Fortnum and Mason. Ours is hand selected from over 40 samples. They even liked our description of it so much they copied it.
Honey and Crystallization. Crystallization is a completely natural process and occurs with all raw honey. The speed and size of the crystallization depends on variations in the balance of sugars, ambient temperature and to some extent water content If your honey is set hard, you can loosen it up by placing it in a pan of hand hot water, (and repeat as necessary) using a spoon placed in hot water first and of course storing it in a sunny/warm place in the house.

Wild about Honey
A 3 Star Great Taste Award in 2020
This 100% Raw, cold-extracted, unfiltered wildflower honey is one of the few multifloral honeys we currently sell.
Quite simply in our opinion this is one the best honeys we have ever tasted, bar none. From any country, any variety. This is a dark western Algarvian wildflower, made by one of our most experienced beekeepers who takes great trouble to produce this type and there is a very limited amount each year.
Made from bees foraging on the abundant spring wildflowers that carpet the hillsides and meadows of the Western and Central Algarve. This honey is made by the same master beekeeper who produced our other 3 star Great Taste Award Winning Heather honey. Parabens Pedro..
Wildflower honey can vary tremendously in colour and flavour depending on the location of the hives and the weather.
This wildflower honey is a dark and highly complex honey, made from the diverse wildflowers including Carob, wild Lavender, Borage, Narcissus, Daisies, Buttercups, Vipers Burgloss,, Lupins, and many more. A wonderful tasty complex honey for anyone with a sweet tooth. This honey is a timeless classic.
