Detailed description

The hives of our beekeeper Jean-Pierre are placed on the slopes of the Tourmalet pass in the Pyrenees from the month of June, the harvest generally taking place at the end of July. The honey is fine, very delicate with a light color, it crystallizes quite slowly and therefore keeps very well. Its smell is weak, rather vegetal or herbaceous, while its aroma is slightly floral, delicate with notes of fresh wood, wax and rose, without bitterness or acidity. Like all the honey from our cooperative, rhododendron honey is labeled Agri-éthique, French Fair Trade. This label guarantees beekeeping practices that respect bees and nature, and fair remuneration for beekeepers. The rhododendron is a melliferous plant belonging to the ericaceae family. It grows in high mountain areas above 1500m altitude. The honey flow of rhododendron is rather capricious because the climatic conditions of high mountain are very random (rains, late frosts etc). A context which confers a real rarity to this exceptional honey, also nicknamed "the Acacia of the Mountains".
