£15.00

A rare and high­ly val­ued sin­gle flower hon­ey known for its exquis­ite rich flavour and the well-known med­i­c­i­nal prop­er­ties of the angel­i­ca herb (also known as wild cel­ery). Depend­ing on the har­vest, the colour may vary from red­dish- to greenish-brown.

Angel­i­ca grows wild only in the cold­er parts of the North­ern Hemi­sphere. Its large umbels of star­burst flow­ers are a com­mon sight in Altai where the plant flour­ish­es in the region’s pris­tine envi­ron­ment.  At har­vest time the hon­ey is col­lect­ed (still leav­ing plen­ty for the bees to eat!) and care­ful­ly coarse fil­tered to remove hive debris. Noth­ing else is tak­en away.

Like all pure unprocessed hon­eys, Mish­ka may crys­tallise in the jar.

Enjoy its nat­ur­al tex­ture or, if you pre­fer, warm the jar in water at no more than 40ºC. This will reverse the crystallisation.

THIS PURE ALTAI HONEY IS…

Unpasteurised

UNPASTEURISED

Indus­tri­al­ly pro­duced hon­eys found in super­mar­kets are heat­ed to high tem­per­a­tures (pas­teurised) so that they will stay run­ny. This process lit­er­al­ly cooks away much of the indi­vid­ual flavours and tex­tures of nat­ur­al hon­ey, as well as destroy­ing its pre­cious antibac­te­r­i­al properties.

Unpasteurised

UNBLENDED

Many super­mar­ket hon­eys are a mix of dif­fer­ent hon­eys from dif­fer­ent coun­tries or con­ti­nents. The result is a homogenised fac­to­ry prod­uct with no sense of region­al dis­tinc­tion. Mish­ka hon­ey is sourced exclu­sive­ly from rur­al pro­duc­ers in Altai, with a char­ac­ter like no other.

SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMUNITIES

By choos­ing Mish­ka hon­ey you are direct­ly sup­port­ing the bee farm­ers of Altai, their fam­i­lies and their remote com­mu­ni­ties. Nur­tur­ing the Siber­ian bee pop­u­la­tions using tra­di­tion­al meth­ods to keep them healthy with­out chem­i­cals or antibi­otics is a way of life that goes back centuries.
