Harvest time: June-July
Rhododendron honey is absolutely one of the most precious and appreciate honey. It is collected in the period from late June to early July in the meadows of rhododendron in the Alpine valleys, at an altitude of almost 2000 meters. At this altitude, the risks are a lot (night temperatures drop to a few degrees above zero and in general the weather is very variable so that not infrequently also happens to find snow). This makes the crop of this honey particularly difficult and tricky.
The honey that you get is extremely delicate and its quality is so high that repay the beekeeper of all his efforts. The color is clear, the crystallization is fine and creamy, with soft crystals pleasing for the palate.
In the mouth the sensations are pleasant, and the sweet taste is very strong. The delicate aroma is enhanced by a note of freshness and floral.
Great used to pair with alpine cheeses.
