Our soft set honey was awarded 2 stars at the 2020 Great Taste Awards. The judges made the following comments after blind tasting our smooth, buttery soft set honey:
'A wonderful soft set honey that melts in the mouth, releasing a comforting, nostalgic taste of how honey was and how it still can be when produced like this. It is not overly sweet and the wildflowers the bees are sourcing are allowed to stamp their distinctive character. The finish is smooth and balanced and lingers delightfully.'
'A very lovely characterful honey, with mineral qualities in it. You can taste the hive, the pollen and all the hard work that's gone into producing this delicate and very delicious honey. The finish is long, floral and gently sweet. A really gorgeous honey - we keep wanting to say cute and sweet because that's it's character. A friendly honey which you would happily put on your toast and in your cupboard. You can tell it was made with love and care.'
Our 2 star Great Taste Award Soft Set Honey is made from the nectar and pollen from a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs from apiaries across North Wales.
It is cold extracted, filtered and unpasteurised to allow the final product to retain all of the vital micronutrients that are present when the honey is extracted from the hive.
Soft Set honey is different from runny honey as it has been seeded with a fine grained, crystallised honey. The fine grain of the seed honey interacts with sugar molecules within the honey to result incredibly smooth and fine textured honey, that melts in the mouth.
North Wales has a complex, diverse mix of hedgerows, forests and moorland which produces a distinct, floral honey.
It is extracted in small batches and the colour of our raw local honey will vary in tune with the changing seasons and flowers our bees feed on but predominantly will be a pale white colour once it is set.
The variety of flowers the honey bees have fed on to create this raw honey will include: Blackberries, Heather, Lime, Willowherb, Clover, Primrose, Cherry, Pear, Lavender and a whole range of wildflowers.

Soft Set Honey - 227g
All pure honey will eventually crystallize due to the natural sugars in it. Raw honey has the tendency to granulate faster than highly processed honey as the sugar molecules have more to attach to because of the pollens, propolis and other inherent ingredients still present.
Soft Set Honey differs from runny honey as it has already crystallised under controlled conditions to form a smooth, fine textured honey.
It will not granulate any further and can be kept for months in correct storage conditions.
