As part of our Calabrian collection, we have collected 6 of the finest honeys available from this famous culinary region of Italy.
Eucalyptus honey has a colour that ranges from light amber to beige with greyish tones. Its fragrance is intense, distinctive and recognizable, and the flavour recalls the taste of caramel, but is more refined. Excellent as a table honey.
Chestnut honey. Bees seem to go crazy when they find chestnut blossoms, becoming excited and even aggressive around the hive. Every day they collect the nectar fervently, even in the dark, after sunset. The flavour is decidedly particular, not very sweet and with an almost bitter aftertaste. It is a perfect honey for delicious contrasts, splendid with aged cheeses or hearty meat dishes.
Thousand Flowers (translates as Millefiori) honey. Millefiori honey from Calabria has as many subtle tones of taste as are the different combinations of flowers visited. Each millefiori honey has a special taste, fragrance, and colour of its own. Flowers include crocuses, primroses, dandelions, sage, melitot, clover, thistles, locust, blackberry, cherry, apricot, apple, almond, chestnut, sunflowers
Acacia honey is one of the clearest in colour, it remains in liquid form regardless of the temperature. The fragrance is light, the flavour delicate and very sweet, with a hint of vanilla. This variation is an excellent sweetener as it does not change the taste or texture of the substances it is added to.
Agrumi honey. This light golden honey is made from the nectar of citrus trees growing in Calabria in April and May. It has the wonderful rich aroma of orange blossoms and a rich, bright flavour and a lovely clean finish.
Thousand Flowers (translates as Millefiori - primarily from the Sulla plant). This honey cannot be called pure Sulla honey because the area that the bees collect from has such a vast and wonderful range of flowers. The Sulla part of the honey has notable floral aromas with a refreshing sweetness. Other flowers include crocuses, primroses, dandelions, sage, melitot, clover, thistles, locust, blackberry, cherry, apricot, apple, almond, chestnut, sunflowers. Try spreading it on a sliced of toast for a light breakfast or pairing it with young cheeses. Each millefiori honey has a special taste, fragrance, and colour of its own.
