Bateel is committed to continually surprising guests with each return visit to its premium boutiques. Customers will be delighted to find a new and unique collection of premium honeys, offering an unforgettable gourmet experience as well as outstanding health benefits. The artisan honeys are the perfect companions alongside a warming cup of tea, and can be used as healthy spreads on favourite pastries. The flavours range from fresh walnuts and herbs to delicate aromas of lemon blossoms and hints of marmalade, and can be used as toppings on a range of desserts including pancakes and ice-cream.
Not only a sweet treat, honey offers a host of beneficial health properties. Through a balanced combination of fructose and glucose, it helps the body regulate blood sugar levels, and the antioxidants can help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease, help with weight loss and increase athletic performance. Several of the honey variants are being introduced to the UAE for the first time, including the Lemon Blossom, Verbena, and Rose. Lemon Blossom, produced from lemon groves on the French coast, is described as “sunshine in a jar”, is a refreshingly zesty yet delicate honey, with a creamy texture that melts in the mouth. It also contains antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which makes it an ideal remedy to soothe sore throats. The Verbena has a calming effect, ideal as a good night treat, while the Rose honey is enriched with rose essential oils for a fine, distinct taste. Patrons to Bateel boutiques will be guided by the team of experts who are on hand to explain the benefits of each of the different honeys, through in store tasting sessions.
On the continual evolution of the Bateel gourmet product mix, Tina Memic, General Manager, Bateel Retail says: “Our new range of honeys have been selected as they reflect both the prestige and the innovation that are the hallmarks of the Bateel brand. In an uncompromising commitment to quality, they are guaranteed pure honeys, and are free from artificial flavourings or extra added sugar, offering a wonderfully diverse range of flavours.”
