BeeActiv Raw Ivy Honey is a 100% natural, 100% Irish, honey made from the nectar of the ivy plant. BeeActiv was started in 2014 when two Irish chemists, Conan McDonnell and Dr. Michael Geary, were drawn together throughout they shared passion for nature and beekeeping. They both strongly believe in the medicinal benefits of plants and how this translates to the honey produced by the plants nectar.
BeeActiv uses honey collected from Conan’s hives in Tipperary and Michael’s hives in Limerick. The honey that they produce is only lightly filtered and remains unpasteurised, giving you a natural, raw honey taste. The honey is allowed to crystallise – a process that is natural to all honeys and is a clear sign that your honey is naturally produced – before being whipped to produce a smooth, delicate, creamy consistency that is perfect for spreading.
BeeActiv Raw Ivy Honey has a deep, resonant flavour, a lingering aftertaste with sweet, slightly herbaceous notes. It has an intense honey flavour but is in no way overpowering. Serve on toasted sourdough with a wheel of baked Cooleeney for dipping. Delicious!
