L’Atelier Du Miel was founded in 2013 by 3 urban young men, an architect, an engineer and a business consultant as a personal journey to reconnect with nature. L’Atelier du Miel has quickly emerged as a loved startup that wishes to share its discoveries with its customers and to help them immerse themselves in nature, craftsmanship and good taste.
L’Atelier du Miel remains faithful to the same homey culture that originally started in the founders’ mother’s kitchen. The founders’ mother is still today the main chef at l’Atelier du Miel, with the help of her own mother too.
THIRST FOR NATURE
Being the third most cheated food product in the world, honey was disappearing from kitchens all over the world. When we bought our first hives back in 2013, our goal was (and still is) to re-establish people’s trust with nature’s purest product.
THE HONEY TRAIL
As newcomers to beekeeping, we used our fresh eye to our advantage, proposing a new approach that focuses on the customer’s aspiration in terms of quality, transparency, and a unique enriching experience.
We started moving our beehives to regions with different altitudes and environments around the seasons following a specific trail. This provided our bees with foraging grounds and natural resources all year, and allowed us to bring unique, natural, and new tastes to our customers: The untouched essence of nature in a jar, more than 20 types of honey from the best locations in Lebanon, with enriching information about their origins, their quality and health benefits.
Our honey is guaranteed 100% raw. It is untouched from hive to jar, not heated, not filtered, or transformed in any way. Our honey is single-origin. It is not blended. Each apiary’s harvest is filled in its own jars and labeled as per the region. Our raw honey is guaranteed free from antibiotics, pesticide residue, and/or any added sugars.
The honey trail was an occasion for us to meet artisans from different trades and obtain from them exclusive accessories and packages: To name a few, the terracotta from Bkerzai, the honey dippers integrating the ornate firebird of Jezzine or the mosaic wood of Tripoli, as well as our signature wood boxes. All our packages today are handmade and are designed to be repurposed.
