One may suspect, that the alpine environment and fresh mountain air leaves traces. Even golden traces. Because Austrian honey received the "Quality Award in Gold".

Back to our honey: we are also in the union of Austrian beekeepers and in addition to the delicious taste we want from eva,VILLAGE and eva,GARDEN set an exclamation point in terms of sustainability. Because our beehives line the garden in the eva,GARDEN.



The Honey and Health Laboratory conducted research and analyzed our honey from Austria. The results listed below are to be proud of …

  • Water content at maximum 17%
  • Invertase over 100 SE
  • Aroma: mild-spicy to aromatic

Figures ​​that are probably not familiar to most readers, but we're happy to explain!


water content

In addition to the various types of sugar, water is the most important and quantitatively the second most important component of honey. For example, young honey has a very high water content of up to 30%. One sees this on the one hand at the coagulation of the honey or worse: when the honey begins to ferment due to yeasts. The ideal water content in honey is 17% or less. At 15% and below, the beekeeper has problems to achieve a fine crystalline structure. This honey then does not carry the precious flavors as well as a honey with 17% water content. This honey is very firm and less spreadable. You will not find it at the breakfast table in the eva,VILLAGE.



The invertase is also called Glucosidase and is a key figure for - to put it crudely - the naturalness of honey. The lower the value, the "worse" and immature is the honey.
In invertase-activity, bees infiltrate an enzyme while transporting their nectar and pollen from the alpine meadow to the hive. For this reason, this figure is also an indication of whether external substances were added to the honey.


Flowers and herbs in the glass

Honey, as we know, consists of flowers that our diligent bees gather over the summer months. The unique landscape of Saalbach with the gentle grass mountains, framed by the mighty mountain ranges of the “Hohe Tauern” and the “Leoganger Steinberge”, is on the mountain pastures biodiversity announced. Herbs and flowers of the most diverse kind blossom here. They are not only pretty to look at, no, you can taste them in our mountain honey.
