Perhaps you could post a link to where you found the honey so I could see if I can find some along here ?
The problem with the honey market in the UK is that the "jar honey" market is controlled by a few big names and also that EU agriculture is less likely to be huge areas of monoculture like in the US and hence not having to use trains and trucks shipping big numbers of hives around for pollination. Resulting in much lower quantity of varietal honey.
That's not to suggest it isn't available just that its more likely to be sold locally in smaller amounts.
With a fewer number of varietals being sold by a tiny number of specialist dealers who are often apiary suppliers too (search for Paynes Southdowns Bee Farms. They're up the road from me and carry a few European varietals plus some slightly different ones from New Zealand etc).
