How to Taste Honey – Marina speaks to Williams Sonoma
We are passionately Italian about the culinary delights of honey. Our philosophy is that every bottle of our own artisanal honey is a gourmet worthy food that can be tasted and evaluated similar to wine, each with its unique flavor profile determined by the nectar from the flowers visited by the honeybees. The unsung fact is that the essence of a honey is dictated by the terroir from the French word for earth, describing the unique combination of geographic location, climate and soil that give each honey its complex composition and tasting notes. As in wine making, terroir dramatically affects the flavor profiles of the honeys produced. Red Bee Honey was honored with a Snail of Approval from Slow Food Metro North.
Honey Care: Pure honey is fragile. To preserve the full flavor of your honey we recommend storing it at room temperature away from direct light or heat. Pure Honey never needs refrigeration and never spoils!
