Pure Forest Honey

A Full Bodied Toffee-Like Honey

Our forest honey starts with an aroma similar of toffee pudding, it has deep, full bodied, slightly smoky, earthy tones, with a more savoury taste than some other honeys. Having been described as similar to a pomegranate molasses there are strong mineral notes with a slightly dry and mostly clean aftertaste. This is quite a thick honey which is higher in natural fructose than other types of honey. Hence, a spoon of forest honey helps to relieve fatigue and a great energy source, the lower glucose keeps it from setting longer than many other types of honey.

Forest honey is collected by bees from forest hives in Asturias northern Spain. The bees feed from chestnut and Mediterranean oak trees as well as beech and pine and often bramble flowers. 

The colour of the honey can vary due to seasonal variations, which is normal with all raw honey.


With its lovely rich earthy flavour chestnut honey is great for using in cookies, as a dessert topping, in granola and rich cakes.

Not sure about the taste? Why not purchase our beautiful 45g mini jar to sample the taste!

    Wonderful, rich and full bodied

    Seems odd to use words associated with wind tasting for a honey but Maters have shown me the wonderful variety there is in honey. I have discovered that I enjoy the richer, less sweet, honey and this is one of my favourites, this and the Oak honey. In fact I'm going to have to stop here I need to make more toast for the honey.

    Good quality

    The two I tried were not to my taste
    Perhaps because at 75 my pallet has been warped by supermarket honey. But I loved the little pots which were ideal for tasting the two that I bought
    Thank you a lovely product which I’m sure will be appreciated by more discerning pallets
