Made in the Italian region of Emilia Romagna, Mitica® Acacia Honey is pure in its sweetness—it’s not filtered or pasteurized in any way. It’s a single varietal honey, meaning bees produce this honey by collecting nectar from just a single kind of flower: the Black Locust. This honey is a delicately floral representation of its native northern Italian terroir, and it’s perfect for drizzling over Cypress Grove Truffle Tremor and Charlito's Cocina Salami Picante Sliced.
- Mitica® Acacia Honey is a single varietal honey, made by bees that collect nectar from just one kind of flower: the blossoms of the Robinia pseudoacacia, otherwise known as the Black Locust.
- This flower gives the honey a delicate floral taste, and it is one of the most popular and sweetest honey varieties.
- It’s neither pasteurized nor filtered, meaning it can vary in flavor, texture, and color.
- The honey is less likely to crystallize because of its high fructose content.
- The farm that produces Mitica® Acacia Honey began collecting honey over two decades ago.
- They maintain approximately 400 hives and follow a nomadic beekeeping method.
- This means their bees are brought to different locations in order to gather nectar in effort to obtain the purest, clearest acacia honey.
- From the Spanish word for mythical, Mitica is a gourmet food importer that offers the best of the best from Spain and the Iberian Peninsula.
- Regional delicacies, like marcona almonds, membrillo, and crispy tortas, are carefully curated by the company’s product experts.
- Based in Long Island, New York, Mitica is part of the specialty food company Forever Cheese, founded by Michele Buster and Pierluigi Sini.
- Forever Cheese was created in 1998 to share Sini’s renowned family cheeses with a U.S. audience.
- The duo originally offered Italian cheeses before moving into Spanish, Portuguese, and even Croatian cheese.
- It wasn’t long before they were also adding other charcuterie staples, like prosciutto and fruit spreads, to the fold
