Mieli Thun monofloral honeys are a result of Andrea Paternoster’s nomadic beekeeping. With respect for the natural flowering cycles, Andrea travels from north to south Italy with his bees. The result are these unique and exotic honeys where each flower is highlighted.

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 terroir also matters as the soil composition, climate, air quality and time of harvest impact the flavors, fructose levels, and consistency of the honey.

Mieli Thun Monofloral Honeys are produced without pasteurization or additives. In this way Andrea is able to capture the pure fragrance and flavor of each flower species in the respective honey. For healthy honey seekers, honey contains antioxidants, and the darker varieties contain large quantities of antioxidants known as flavenoids.

This is the Chestnut Honey. Produced between the end of June and the first half of July from wild mountain chestnut flowers, this honey is extraordinarily versatile and is rich in minerals. Amber colored, it possesses an aromatic, herbal and pungent aroma and flavor with a slightly bitter and tannic aftertaste. Rich with nice fluidity. 

Recommended with strong cheeses. Try a dessert plate with Pecorino toscano, pears and chestnut honey. Or drizzle it over a plate of seasonal fruit and ricotta.

Honey should not be fed to children under one year of age.
