This Sidr Honey is directly harvested in Wadi-e-Doan (Doan Valley) of Hadramut region in Yemen by the oldest beekeeping family, dating back to 800 Years. Sidr Flowers bloom in late October every year, therefore it is only harvested once a year.
The rarity of this desert honey makes it one of the most sought after honey in the world.
We work with traditional beekeepers of Do'an Valley in Yemen. They use the ancient beekeeping methods - long, thin hives hollowed from a tree. Camels are used for transportation, moving only at night in order to allow the bees to work during the day. When the combs are full of honey, they are cut out with a knife. A bit of honey is left in the hive as a provision for the bees in drier months. The techniques of beekeeping and honey extraction have remained unchanged throughout the generations. Enjoy a taste of luxury.
