Hawthorn honey from Charentes
Fruity and perfumed
Smooth and floral, Hédène’s hawthorn honey is an extremely rare french honey, whose fruity flavour will delight you
Hédène's hawthorn honey is a rare type of honey, obtained from the white flowers of hawthorn, a shrub known for its difficult crop. This honey boasts very fruity and perfumed aromas, and is recognisable thanks to both its colour (either pale or amber) and its very creamy texture. Renowned for its sedatives virtues, it is a natural remedy against stress-related issues such as insomnia or digestive problems.
Harvested in the Charentes, on the south-western coast of France, the difficulty to cultivate hawthorn is one of the main reasons why its honey is so craved and distinguished. The period during which this shrub flourishes is indeed very short, usually starting in March. The harsh climatic conditions of this period of the year tend to destroy most of the flowers, renowned for their unique smell.
But more than this distinctive perfume, Hédène’s hawthorn honey is also famed for its softness and its good length on the palate, both hardly paralleled, hence its reputation as an illustrious and subtle honey.
