"A noble ingredient” to be used in all culinary preparations, traditional as well as innovative.

Andrea Paternoster’s dream is to capture the unique essence of each variety of flower. A nomadic beekeeper, Andrea travels with his bees throughout Italy, carefully following the flowering seasons of dozens of different types of flowers, to produce a beautiful variety of monofloral honeys whose flavors capture the essence and uniqueness of each flower. Key to his art is being in harmony with the bees and his ability to follow the natural cycles and the myriad of blossoms as they play out along the Italian peninsula’s climatic and geographical differences.

Mieli Thun Monofloral Honeys are produced without pasteurization or additives. In this way Andrea is able to capture the pure fragrance and flavor of each flower species in the respective honey.
It has the scent of new-mown grass and wet hay. the taste is medium sweet, with notes of boiled milk and grape must, with low acidity and tenuous plant aromas. alfalfa has a pollination mechanism that “smacks” the bees when they land on the flowers.
Used to make soft nougat and jelly candies. as an ingredient in spreadable chocolate and hazelnut cream and to sweeten mulled wine.
