Agreed.  In fact, it would be in their best business interests to do so ... 
water is cheap.  It did occur to me though that it was mentioned that the 
honey was packaged in a "tin".  If it was "canned", I wonder if the canning 
process (AKA heating/pasteurizing) might not have had something to do with 
the change in flavor and texture.

Warm Regards,
