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.
