Delicately floral, this lavender honey from Le Querce is a sweet tribute to the fragrant flowers that are ubiquitous around the Mediterranean. With an unmistakable aroma of lavender, this all-natural honey is a delicious taste of the summer sun all year round.

While we may think of honey as one basic flavor, the passionate bee experts at Le Querce are trying to showcase the wide spectrum of honey, each as distinct as the flower it comes from. Flavors can range from spicy and dark to floral, roasty, and even bitter—all in addition to sweet, of course! Their Nettari line contains more than a dozen monofloral honeys, each collected from a single flower type. This lavender honey is harvested in June and July from the vast lavender fields of Provence in the south of France.

In 1998, Giuseppe Perino turned his passion for beekeeping into a conscientious, nature-first business. Based in the lush valley of the Anfiteatro Morenico in the northwestern Piedmont region, the family-run Le Querce now specializes in all things bee-related, from honey to pollen, royal jelly, and incredible sweets. They run the company according to practices that reflect their love and respect for nature: nomadic beekeeping, organic production methods, and honoring and protecting the biodiversity of their home. They work with like-minded farmers around Italy and France to source honeys that showcase the incredible breadth of flavors of the countryside.
Lavender honey is mild and sweet, with an unmistakable aroma of lavender flowers and notes of chamomile and jasmine. This smooth, creamy honey is naturally crystallized, resulting in a thick, luscious spread. Use it to sweeten your coffee and teas for the most delightful flavored lattes or spread on ricotta toast or fresh biscuits. For a pourable honey, heat gently just until it liquifies—too much heat will destroy its unique flavor compounds.
