Little Honey - Yemeni Sidr Honey

Ever heard of the Manuka of the East? A 2-year search for the best honey in the world finally blossomed when Little Honey experienced the taste of Yemeni Sidr Honey. This taste was love and when you love something, you share it with the world!

7 years on, Little Honey takes pride in being the trusted brand in homes and the supplier of Premium Pure Sidr Honey in Singapore, Pakistan, Australia and the UK. What’s more, they are the first to make it available in convenient, easy to use straw sizes.

Yemen Sidr Honey is the rarest and most expensive honey in the world and is sought after because of it’s exquisite taste and health benefits as a natural medicine, and even an aphrodisiac. In fact, the demand for raw, pure and aged real Sidr honey from Yemen is so high that it is known to sell for up to US$1000 per Kilogram!

What’s so special about this honey you ask? Sidr Honey is made from bees who only feed on the nectar of the Sidr tree, which is native to the Hadhramaut region of Yemen. The Sidr tree is considered sacred and every part of the tree, from roots to its fruits have been used as a natural medicine for centuries - for over 7000 years may we add! 

#LittleHoneyFans love the earthy, rich yet delicate, perfectly sweet flavour of Sidr Honey. But as they say, tasting is believing! Take a pick from their honey straws and jars to see why everyone is making a ‘beeline’ for this gorgeous golden syrup.
