With these 3 new awards the number of award winning Dr Honey products has increased to 9 medals since our establishment in 2014.

The Great Taste awarded products of Dr Honey:

Premium silkweed honey

The judges described our silkweed honey as „Deep dark aromas of tobacco on the nose, it drizzles excellently. On the palate it is really distinctive, a “grown up” almost meaty flavour with a good acidity. The judges really liked the fact it was not overly sweet and was mysterious in taste. Unusual and delicious„ and also “Deep amber in colour, with a heady, almost heathery fragrance. Silky and buttery on the palate with a good length of flavour and a creaminess that lasts to the finish“.

Premium linden honey

The judges highly appreciated that our linden honey has “a pretty shiny appearance with a rich treacle colour. It has a natural, clean taste; an intense toffee flavour with floral note” and also the “strong complex notes of woodiness, balsamic with a mint finish.”

Honey Delight: Avola almond coated with lavender flavoured milk chocolate and freeze-dried honey

The evaluation of the judges was as follows: “An even sample with crisp creamy almonds. The outer chocolate used to enrobe the almonds is thick and extremely creamy and the dusting has a very delicate taste of honey. There is a perfumed lavender note which is very delicate but adds a floral layer of flavour.“
