Sweeten Your Life with Miel de Palma

Literally translated as palm honey, Miel de Palma comes from the island of La Gomera and is not actually a honey at all but is derived from Guarapo – sap taken from the island’s distinctive date palm trees  – which has been cleaned, filtered and distilled to produce a rich, sweet syrup which tastes a bit like molasses. Used for centuries, Guarapo has strong medicinal properties and high energy content which made it a valuable food and medicine for the Guanche, original inhabitants of the islands. Today its production methods have improved but the product itself remains in its purest form.
