Mountain honey of the Maira Valley. 1 kg jar. This alpine flower honey is produced in Valle Maira, a beautiful wild and uncontaminated area that climbs from the Cuneo plain to the French border. In June, the meadows are covered with fragrant flowers (such as yarrow, rhododendron, campanula and serpil thyme), allowing the production of a unique honey. Beige in colour tending to amber, mountain honey crystallizes reasonably slowly, assuming a very pleasant texture on the palate. Its floral and relatively aromatic note makes it one of the appreciated and versatile honeys. Its floral and relatively aromatic note makes it excellent in combination with alpine cheeses or lard. Also widely used as a sweetener for tea and infusions. Brezzo honey experts respect the properties of this gift of nature at each and every stage of the production process, highly controlled and free of heat treatments. The interventions on the product are minimized and do not mix honey from different batches so as to preserve the typicality of honey. The key principles of the Brezzo circle of relatives company, based in Canale (CN), are tradition, innovation, craftsmanship, carried out for three generations. The company offers and selects honey of the very best quality and gourmet food specialties.
