This pure, crystal-clear acacia honey is an AOC of Hungary where the vast acacia forests feed the bees. This pure honey is absolutely GMO-free, sharing many of the compounds with Manuka, and is as good internally – and far sweeter!

This pure, crystal-clear acacia honey is an AOC of Hungary where the vast acacia forests feed the bees. This raw honey is absolutely GMO-free, sharing many of the compounds with Manuka, and is as good internally – and far sweeter!

The black locust tree, also known as false acacia, is present in Europe, especially in Hungary. Bearing a mildly sweet flavour, this variety of honey is highly sought after around the world. It is almost clear, like liquid glass, and very slow to crystalise.

    I’ve had acacia honey a few times before but as Thom pointed out at the festival, loads of the stuff I’ve been eating is from the supermarket. This is really, really different. I’m not buying the supermarket crap anymore. Thom – I salute your recommendation.
