Located in Luberon, just north of the beautiful Aix en
Provence in France, L’Abeille Occitane is known worldwide for their exquisite, all-natural
honey varieties. The company
specializes in producing mono-varietal
honeys by collecting honey from bees fed on specific plants and trees. The cold press extraction process
used by L’Abeille Occitane preserves the integrity and natural flavors of the
honey. No artificial flavoring is used at
any stage, so each jar is filled with only the purest form of luscious honey.
The distinctive flavor of the lavender honey is attributed to the bees
feeding predominantly on the wild lavender that flourishes in this region. It tastes
delicious drizzled over grilled peaches, warmed and served over homemade
vanilla ice cream, or as an accompaniment to pork roast.
The honey collected from bees feeding largely on
chestnut flowers gives the chestnut honey a uniquely earthy taste. This honey pairs
well with goat cheese, pears, and figs.
Orange blossom, acacia, lemon and
rosemary are the other exotic mono-variety honeys produced by L’Abeille Occitane. Each of these
has its own characteristic floral taste and flavor. These delicious, floral-flavored
honeys go well with both sweet and savory dishes or they can be simply eaten
straight off a spoon.
L’Abeille Occitane also produces the most divine honey
candy drops. These all-natural honey-flavored hard candies are filled with
liquid honey. The hard candy exterior melts slowly and deliciously in your
mouth, breaking through suddenly to the molten, gooey center in a delightful,
heady explosion of liquid lavender honey. L’Abeille Occitane also produces
Honey Pearls, available in cranberry, mint, lemon, and violet. These candies
will satisfy your sweet tooth without being overpowering.
