Our ‘Silver medalist’ in the Irish Quality Food & Drinks award, which also received a 1 Star in the Guild of Fine Foods – Great Taste Award and which was also a top 5 and a finalist in the ‘Blas na hEireann – Irish Taste Awards’ Blossom honey, is not an overly sweet honey.
It does have a rather distinctive character, the finish is smooth and well balanced and lingers delightfully in your mouth. You can taste the nectar & pollen and all of the bees hard work that’s gone into producing it. The variety of flowers the honey bees have fed will include: Willow, Crocus, Cherry blossom, Dandeloins, Lime, Blackberries, Clover, Primrose and a whole range of wildflowers.
The Guild of Fine Food judges described it as “Aromatic with bursts of forest and botanical scents. The natural woodiness and floral notes give strong and complex flavours that could stand up well when baking or cooking, or simply on its own.” Whilst another stated it was “Crystal clear glowing honey with a bright and fresh flavour.” Another judge said it was “A thin, runny honey which instantly delivers the anticipated woody and botanical notes. An intense, lingering flavour, with a gently spiced finish. A very nice honey, which would work well in many different ways, both in cooking and as a table honey.”

Our family is a ‘ Honey’ family. We have tried many honeys and Blackwater Honey is top notch. We especially like it on toast and it is lovely in sauces. I got my neighbour who doesn’t like honey at all to taste it and she actually said, ‘oh that’s lovely and sweet’. 😍
Thank you for the kind review. We are glad you and your neighbour like it! Hopefully, it will have converted her. 🙂

We were really impressed with the lovely taste of this honey. It has a lovely fresh and light flavour and texture. The kids love putting it in their cereal, and we would definitely recommend others to try it.
Glad you all enjoyed it!

I bought two jars of Blackwater honey today in Hannas Fermoy and I was well impressed with the quality and lovely presentation. My Mother & daughter were also trilled with this beautiful nutritional/natural product.
I wish Andrew & John every success with their new enterprise – Blackwater honey as they deserve to do very well.

We have just started stocking this beautiful blossom honey, and to say it has been flying out would be an understatement, it’s a delicate not to sweet runny honey and you can really tell the difference from processed blended honeys. We are very excited to be the first stockists in Ireland, and apart from it being a great honey the branding is spot on, it real pops on the shelves.

Just received my honey, it is fantastic. It tastes extremely pure and natural!
I enjoy the product even more knowing the excellent and caring craftsmanship put into the welfare of the bees and production of the final product.
Will be purchasing again!
