Fir Honeydew Honey by Mieli Thun
Produced between July and August in Trento, Italy, when bees collect the sugary secretion from fir tree parasites. Called Melatata d'Abete in Italian, Fir Honeydew honey shows rare and complex characteristics. Colored dark amber, sometimes with greenish hues, it presents a woodsy fragrance of resin and balsam. On the tongue it is very persistent to the palate, not very sweet and with marked tones of malt and caramel with smoky hues. This rich, dark honey is perfect for fans of Chestnut or Buckwheat honey.

Mieli Thun's small, family run company is renowned for its many types of single variety Italian honeys, obtained through knowing and directed nomadic beekeeping. Their ambition is to help lead a renaissance in artisanal honey-making: the quintessence of the art of gathering honey.

  • No honey should be fed to infants 12 months or younger.
