Many beekeepers believe lavender to be among the honeybee's favorite flowering species because of the relatively large amount of nectar it produces and the hardy nature of the plant.
This Lavender Honey is made from the nectar of Lavandula stoechas luisieri, which grows wild on the border between Spain and Portugal and blankets the mountainsides in purple flowers during the month of May.
Lavender honey is a sought-after varietal popular around the world. Most companies sell a French varietal of lavender honey, while others only sell lavender-infused honey. This is neither. And that is what makes it such a deliciously incredible find.
