Floriano Wild Rhododendron Honey - 500g

Country of Origin: Italy
Region: Piedmont
City / Village: Elva
Flavor Profile: Mild

From Apicoltura Floriano Turco in the town of Elva amidst the Italian Alps near the border with France. These honeys are true artisanal products where one man tends to his hives, collects the comb and produces some of the best varietal honeys we have tasted.

All of his honey is certified by BioCert for its adherence to sustainable agricultural standards (an EU designation comparable to the U.S. organic, but with much more stringent requirements).

This honey is made from the pollen of the rhododendron plant that grows high up in the Italian Alps such that it is often called "Rosa delle Alpi" or Rose of the Alps. This liquid honey is known for its light aroma and subtle flavors. This is one of the more difficult varietal honeys to make as the areas where the rhododendron grow can be difficult to access and the blooms are often available only in late June through July. Even more important to the artisan producer is not allowing the hives to remain for too long in the area as if any other pollen is allowed to contaminate that of the rhododendron, it will risk masking the beautiful subtlety of the rhododendron. For these reasons, this is a rare honey to find in the monovarietal format.
