Chestnut Honey 250gr
Amber and long in the mouth, strong...
Although there are traces of peasant beekeeping practices in Corsica dating back to antiquity, this human nurturing activity was almost abandoned at the end of the Second World War. Farmers organized themselves from 1976, asking for and obtaining a commercial preservation of the appellation of origin, for their honey production. Authentic flavors, from the most bitter to the sweetest, which take us on a journey from seaside orchards to mountain chestnut trees and the Corsican maquis.
