Arbutus honey - made in Italy
Origin: Calabria and Sardinia
Harvest period: october - november
Consistency: creamy and rich in round and very fine crystals, Arbutus Honey is homogeneous and soft to the palate.
Colour: arbutus Honey presents a mixture of colours, from amber shades when the product is liquid, to nut-grey or milky coffee when crystallized.
Taste: a very light sweet note opens and closes the tasting of a definitely bitter and slightly astringent product. The tasting itinerary firstly recalls traditional rhubarb candies. Then, when Arbutus Honey meets mouth receptors, it shows its toasted and unripe soul, as that of underground bitter roots or green branches. The persistent aftertaste leaves a raw coffee bean fingerprint.
Flavour: coherently with its scent, Arbutus Honey aroma is a photograph of an after-meal coffee. It gives a pleasant bitter feeling, which leaves room for imagination: as if, we had tasted the leaf of a green and poisonous plant or an infusion of pungent wild grasses.
