Miel factory invites you to savor its Rhododendron honey. Harvested in the Pyrénées Atlantiques region in France , this honey is labelled as a high mountain honey. As such, it has been collected at more than 1500 meters of altitude

Rhododendron grows in high altitude, where the forest gives way to the moor. This shrub, covered in bright green leaves, can measure up to one meter. It produces pink and sometimes even bright red flowers in the summer time. Due to abrupt mountain weather changes, the exact time of the flowers’ lifespan is pretty fluctuant.  

As such, the honey is generally collected late September. Rhododendron honey has a creamy texture. Its fine granularity makes for a slow crystallization process. This honey is most appreciated for its complex aroma and finesse en bouche.
