La Tovara 2018 Mangrove Honey

Mangrove Honey is raw, pure, unfiltered, unpasteurized honey collected from mangroves trees which grow at the edge of the ocean. The bees roam freely, collecting wildflower nectar along with the unique, salty nectar of the mangrove flowers. The raw honey is carefully collected and processed to maintain the beneficial health properties and the unique flavor, with nothing added or subtracted.

Compared to La Tovara 2017

Sea salt and bay leaf are still primary flavors in 2018 compared to 2017’s La Tovara. However, where 2017 dives straight into mineral and woody herbs like savory, 2018 takes a more lighthearted turn with fresh, grassy olive oil. The warm mid-tone of coriander is stronger and leans more towards the flavor of mace. Additionally playing on the palette is the sweet, indulgent flavor of salt-water taffy, which was lacking in 2017. The mouthfeel is similar, with a light, clean finish and lingering salt.

Terroir

Mangrove roots reach into the sea and the silt, pulling minerals and riches up from the depths. The velvet flowers of mangroves bloom in the clean, pure breeze of the coast. The nectar captures hints of the salty wind and the offerings of the sea, combining to produce honey that is slightly salty and full of minerals, and yet that also remains airy and fresh.

 

 Recommended Pairings

Chicken, fish, earthy spices, salami, mezcal, whiskey, and blue cheese.

 Nayarit

Nayarit is a lush, verdant, coastal state of Mexico. Mangrove trees hug the Pacific coastline and sweep up into the delta, teeming with wildlife.

The terrain loops up into low hills smothered in sugar cane and fruit trees, and then rises sharply up to 4,500 feet, where coffee plants hide beneath a pine canopy.
