An excellent example of terroir, monofloral honey offers a unique taste of place. Over the past century, Mieli Thun has harvested nectar from local bees that pollinate nearby flowers. The resulting selection of honey captures the pure fragrance and flavor of the hills, forests, and pastures of Italy.
Italian honey is classified and labeled according to origin, variety of blossom, or method of extraction. The flavor and aroma of honey is specific to the variety of flora from which the nectar is gathered by the bees. As with wine and olive oil, the terrior also matters as the soil composition, climate, air quality and time of harvest impact the flavors, fructose levels, and consistency of the honey.
Gift set includes six 8.8oz jars of Mieli Thun honey along with a stainless steel honey dripper. Honeys are subject to availability and may not be the specific six pictured.
