Chestnut Honey, Brezzo, 350g

Sold out

Liquid honey from Piemonte. Intense aromas of wood, and toffee. The flavours are deliciously rich, not too sweet, with caramel-like characteristics. One of the most widely used honeys throughout Italy, especially matched with seasoned cheeses (Castelmagno, Grana Padano, Parmigiano Reggiano) or medium-strength cheeses (Taleggio, Toma), or Ricotta.

Shortly after the Second World War the Brezzo family founded their business in the gastronomic mecca of Piemonte. Their aim was to create artisan honeys from a variety of pollens, which impart unique flavours, collected from areas far from sources of pollution. The majority of their honeys are produced entirely in Piemonte, making use of the diverse flora of the area, but where that is not possible (there aren't many orange groves in the North for instance!) they turn to the best regions within Italy and carefully select produce that adheres to their strict philosophy.
