Our flagship product, a multi-award-winning honey, holder of a two-star 2017 Great Taste Award from the United Kingdom Guild of Fine Food and the international Biomiel prize.

"This honey has a fudgy texture but is smooth in the mouth. The depth of the floral notes is outstanding and long lasting. A very special honey indeed."

This was the view of 8 to 16 different judges at the UK Guild of Fine Food who awarded our Raw Organic Rivera Gum Honey a Two-Star Great Taste Award 2017.

In 2011 this honey beat over 200 honeys to win the coveted international Biolmiel prize for the tastiest organic honey in the world.

It tastes like butterscotch caramel toffee fudge with a lingering chocolate aftertaste.

Harvested by six local beekeepers from a small forest of eucalyptus trees on the borders of northern Uruguay and southern Brazil, this honey is one of the purest eucalyptus honeys in the world, with a eucalyptus pollen count of over 85%.

It can be eaten or used externally on the face, skin and hair.

Customers have informed us applying this honey onto their children's eczema has made it disappear overnight.

This honey tastes addictively delicious straight off a spoon, in creamy organic plain yoghurt, or on top of premium vanilla ice-cream.

Read on for more details about the origin, taste and uses of this set honey.

Deep in the hills of Rivera province where northern Uruguay meets southern Brazil lies a forest of eucalyptus (gum) trees. Bees feed on the nectar from these trees to produce our Raw Organic Rivera Gum Honey.

Once a year six local beekeepers harvest this honey so we can bring it to your table straight from the hive, raw, living and unfiltered.

In accordance with EU directive 1924/2006 we are unable to make any health claim about any of our honeys. The information given below is either background information about the plants from which our honey comes, or anecdotal based on customer reviews.

85-90% of this honey comes from bees feeding on eucalyptus plants. The eucalyptus plant has an astonishing number of uses.
Customers have informed us that applying this honey onto their children's eczema has made it disappear overnight.
The eucalyptus plant is used to fight colds and coughs and throat and chest infections. It has an expectorant effect on coughs (stops coughs) that is similar or better than cough medicine.
The eucalyptus plant is used as a powerful antiseptic that soothes burns, cuts, ulcers and insect bites.
When used as a face mask it can be very powerful in the prevention of acne.
Scientific research indicates that eucalyptus extracts can be effective in treating diarrhoea.
Eucalyptus extracts are also used:
- as a massage rub to soothe stiff muscles and joint pains
- as a natural treatment for dandruff
- as a digestive aid due to its exceptionally high content of the enzyme diastase
- to cleanse the urinary tract when taken in warm water
- to prevent growth of cancer cells
- during pregnancy due to its exceptionally high vitamin, mineral and folic acid content
- to increase general immunity to infections and diseases

This honey can be used like ordinary honey but is best taken as a teaspoon of this honey mixed into a glass of cool or warm (not hot) water and drunk three times a day on an empty stomach.

soft and sweet

Really tasty honey not overpowering but sweet enough. Lot's of benefits to having raw honey every morning. Also packaged really well, Thank you.


Bought 3 different ones to try. All tasted delicious. The mesquite was one of my favourite. Rivera gum honey was also very nice.Not sure it will work against hayfever here as local honey maybe better, but i will defnitely buy again and maybe try the other flavours.

Best honey ever!
