"Mélologie" of Chestnut Honey

Aroma

A pronounced woody scent with light caramel and nutty notes, ending on a warm hint of prune.

Texture

This honey is liquid and so has a very slow crystallisation process.

Origin

France - PGI* Cévennes honey harvested by Muriel Pascal (A Beekeeper) (*PGI: protected geographical indication)

A little culture

Until the 1940s, beekeepers from the Cévennes and elsewhere created hives from old chestnut tree trunks. Once hollowed out, swarms would settle their colony inside.

In addition, beekeeping and chestnut forestry are linked by similar ecological issues. Since 2014, many partnerships, particularly in the Cévennes, Ardèche and Haut Languedoc regions were formed  to research into fighting against Cynips, a Chestnut parasite, in cooperation with the INRA (National Institute for Agricultural Research).
