The Italian word for honey is “miele” and it originates from the Latin word melit (sweet). For ages honey was the only concentrated sweet available food. The first traces of human built bee hives go back to VI century B.C. For thousands of years’ honey was the main sweetener used by humanity. Different types of honeys are produced by placing the beehives in close vicinity to special trees such as the Acacia, the Chestnut, the Cherry, the Orange, thus obtaining different shades of color and taste according to the blossom the bees have come in contact with. Then there is the wild flower honey, that bees produce by visiting different plants and trees.

Italian chestnut honey


With no doubt, it isn’t suitable for the timid palate; use it in the preparation of biscuits, cakes and ice creams. Also try it on roasts and on venison, and certainly in tea with milk.


As other brands of honey (Spruce fir and pine), chestnut honey is very rich in anti-oxidants, many more than clearer honeys.
