Mountain Flowers



Moun­tain Flow­ers com­bines sweet­ness with a fresh, com­plex taste rem­i­nis­cent of the shrubs and herbs that flour­ish in the crys­tal clear air of the Altai val­leys and foothills.

By locat­ing hives at high­er alti­tudes, farm­ers encour­age their bees to for­age wide­ly among moun­tain-lov­ing plant vari­eties includ­ing mar­al root, aca­cia, hawthorn, poten­til­la fru­ti­cosa, bird cher­ry, hon­ey­suck­le, mead­owsweet and oregano. In addi­tion, at these high alti­tudes the rich min­er­al com­po­si­tion of the soil makes the health ben­e­fits of this hon­ey par­tic­u­lar­ly potent.

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.




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.


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.
