Raw forest honey is a mix of forest trees flowers from the forests of Northern Lithuania. The taste of honey perfectly balances the distinctive tones of Willow and Alder trees, and the subtle herbal sweetness from Fabaceae flowers. Wild pine adds a full bodied aromatic essence.
Forests in Lithuania grow in massive areas. Most importantly they are kept wild and free from any spraying of chemicals. Hence, within the forest you can approach all types of wildlife from the four legged to the winged. As a result, bees roam wild forests and collect natural honey rich in minerals and nutrients from this clean eco system.
Bee Baltic's honey is unprocessed, unpasteurized, and 100% raw.
Unlike the majority of shop bought honey, raw honey is completely free of antibiotics and pesticides. It’s naturally antibacterial and is a great supplement to your diet.
All of Bee Baltic honey is gently filtered by hand to remove any large solids to make it into a heavenly golden liquid. Unlike industrialized heat treatment and filtering, the traditional preparation method of honey keeps all the natural nutritional properties.
Crystallisation: It is natural characteristic for raw honey to set (crystallise). Should crystallisation occur, gently warm the jar in hot water.
Raw honey, which has not been pasteurised or processed, tends to change its structure and sets (crystallises) over time. You may see beautiful light patterns forming on the walls of the jar. The light patterns, formed due to glucose and fructose composition in all natural honey, are commonly known across Baltic beekeepers as “honey frost”. Glucose tends to crystallize faster than fructose and due to different density it covers the walls of the honey jar
My name is Paul and after years of living in the busy finance environment, I decided it was time to make a change. London was full of action, new experiences and interesting people, but I was always missing something that was deep within me – nature.
During the next year I left my finance career and moved back to Lithuania, where I immersed myself in my Baltic heritage. I turned to the deep roots of my ancestors and learned the real honey traditions passed down by generations of beekeepers. My aim was to bring a spoonful of unspoilt nature to our fast-paced modern world, and that’s how Bee Baltic was born.
Baltic bees roam wild meadows and woodlands filled with native wildflowers, linden blossoms and wild buckwheat to make deliciously healthy, sweet honey. Our job is to provide them with a safe and ethical environment to thrive in.
But due to 21st century’s extreme use of pesticides, pollution and expansion of big cities, bees are on a steep decline all around the world. And as they pollinate about 70% of all food crops, bees are crucial to our environment.
That’s why Bee Baltic works with a selection of small-scale local beekeepers that promote ethical beekeeping practices. Through our bee products, you can support the sustainable and responsible beekeeping, which will help to save the bees.
Just like my grandfather passed on the love of bees to me, so is Bee Baltic sharing the goodness of real honey with you.
Thanks to mother nature, we can offer you honey in its most natural form – unprocessed, unpasteurized, and 100% raw. Unlike shop bought honey, raw honey is completely free of antibiotics and pesticides. It’s naturally antibacterial and is a great supplement to your diet.
All of our honey is gently filtered by hand to remove any large solids to make it into a heavenly golden liquid. Unlike industrialized heat treatment and filtering, the traditional preparation method of honey keeps all the natural nutritional properties.
Due to the natural process of glucose separating from water, raw honey will crystallize as time goes by. While many people believe that this is a sign of honey going bad, it’s quite the opposite. The crystallization process is a sign that your honey is natural, without added sugar syrups and heat treatments.
Sustainable and ethical beekeeping practices is what Bee Baltic stands for. We take great pride in our traditional beekeeping methods. As a result, our bees are cared for with natural healing remedies, which are free from any antibiotics. Our honey is tested at a certified laboratory to meet the standards of 100% raw and natural honey.
We deeply care for the bees and their existence. Bee Baltic’s priority is to ensure they have a safe environment that they can flourish in. To help us make an impact that matters, all you have to do is enjoy our Baltic liquid gold.
