Linden
(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…

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.
