How to choose honey

Honey is a fantastic ingredient, and our producer Adi Apicoltura manages to pack all its natural goodness into every jar. Renowned not only as a valid alternative to sugar, Adi Apicoltura honey is organic, raw, and its range can adapt to any kitchen use. ⁠

With so many varieties, it can help to have some guidelines of the different flavours, pairing options and organoleptic properties of the honeys in our shop. 


Acacia Honey Extremely mild, light in colour, vanilla-like flavour, versatile sweetening, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic. Great with goat and soft cheeses.
