Pacific Northwest Wild Blackberry Honey by Beekeeper Henry Storch
"I always feel really lucky to live in Oregon, because we're home to some of most talented food producers and artisans in the country. This honey is a perfect example, produced from the hives of Henry Storch, one of the most distinguished beekeepers in the country. I picked a local Oregon favorite varietal, "wild blackberries" to share with you. Single varietal honeys have nuanced flavor profiles. Just as an animal’s diet affects the flavor of its meat or soil influences a wine’s terroir, a bee’s food source (type of flower) can make an identifiable difference in the way honey looks and tastes. This honey has an especially bright and floral flavor, and an extremely clean finish with no lingering astringency or acidic aftertaste." - Jiying

This honey varietal derived primarily from wild blackberry (Rubus bifrons and Rubus vestitus) nectar was harvested in late July in the Oregon Coast Range near Elk City. It has a floral flavor with notes of quince and a clean finish. The harvest date, apiary location, and primary nectar source(s) are written on the label.
Honey is never heated over natural hive temperatures, and we only filter it minimally, so it may include pollen, small wax particles, and the occasional bee bit. All natural honey will solidify eventually. To liquify, place the jar in a bowl of warm (not boiling) water. Our honeys are never flavored or infused with added ingredients. The varietal names indicate the primary nectar source plants the bees were foraging on at the time of honey production.
