(European lime tree)
This distinctive single flower honey is pale in colour and deliciously sweet, making it very popular with children. Beyond that first sweetness there are also refreshing, slightly lemony notes.

At the height of summer this lovely tree is heavy with fragrant, nectar-laden blossom and the contented buzz of bees from hives carefully placed nearby.
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…
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.
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.
