Mieli Thun Artisan Alpine Flowers Honey (fiori delle alpi) from nomadic beekeeping.

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.

This is the Alpine Wildflowers Honey, and Andrea refers to it as "meditative". You will certainly be enraptured by the notes of rhododendron, raspberry, linden, and thyme. The color is amber, with darker tones at times. Your senses will be enchanted by notes of artichoke and rhubarb. Light sweet notes add to the complex bitter notes and it closes with great harmony. 

This is splendid with aged cheese from high altitude pastures, Greek yogurt, and with vegetables prepared with delicate spices. 

Try it also in stock when cooking game, and in the water when cooking vegetables such as spinach, chard, and asparagus. This is also recommended in fruit salads and in smoothies. 

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