Archibald's Floral Honey is a special blend of native Australian honeys produced only from 100% Australian honey. This honey has a consistent clean balanced taste and is perfect for the commercial mead maker wanting to make a medium strength consistent and reliable quality and tasting Mead.
This is a honey with a difference, but still completely natural – no additives at all. We recommend you try this honey if you like making a medium body and characterful aromatic mead, cyser or metheglin.
Archibald's Floral Quality Honey is a favourite both as a table honey and a honey for mead making. Archibald’s Floral Quality Honey Blend is a blend of 100% Pure Australian Honey from Australian family owned beekeepers.
In 1920, Mr. James Archibald bought a farm in the Mallee in Victoria Australia with beehives on it and as a result, his son Robert developed a keen, life long interest in bees and honey. Robert being a commercial beekeeper, did not agree with honey bought and sold on colour, as was the case in those days. Robert Archibald was so adamant, that honey should be sold on flavour, that he started packing and selling honey varieties as we see today. This was the beginning of Archibald Honey – A proudly Australian family owned business we are proud to support and partner at BeerCo. Archibald Honey are

- Only 100% Pure Australian Honey Since 1959

Archibald Honey values: Archibald Honey only sell top grade premium Australian honey. All Archibald's honey is produced away from cities and their pollutants. Archibald's choose proven old natural methods over using chemicals on their bee’s. Archibald's do not feed their bee’s sugar syrups to increase their ‘honey’ production. Instead, they leave enough honey on their bee’s for them to eat between honey flows. They process the honey as little as possible, to keep all the nutrients intact. Archibald's only warm the honey until it is liquid then run it through a bag strainer that collects any large particles and most of the beeswax. The warming process is unique to Archibald's, it leaves honey that is not damaged or burnt by heat and honey that lasts a decent amount of time in the jar before starting to crystallize. This is ideal when you are looking to make a natural full flavour mead, metheglin or cyser.
