Puremiel Organic Lavender Honey
A clear honey from lavender fields in the south of Spain, it has a lovely floral scent and intense sweetness – perfect for swirling into tea and even cocktails. The tall glass bottle is a beauty and would make this a covetable gift for gourmets.
Rare Hawaiian Organic White Kiawe Honey
This highly prized tropical honey is collected from a desert grove in Hawaii where Kiawe trees are the only vegetation that grows, making it exceptionally pure. It crystallizes naturally, giving it a rich and creamy spreadable texture that melts on your tongue.
