This beautiful citrus blossom organic honey from Italy has a pale golden hue with an aromatic, orange/citrus flavour and citrus blossom perfume.
The Southern Italian regions of Calabria and Puglia are home to extensive orchards of orange, lemon and other citrus trees. With arrival of the northern spring in March and April, the orchards are filled with the brilliant white citrus blossoms which are rich with fragrant nectar. ADI deliver their hives to selected certified organic orchards in the region.
Honey from citrus is light colored with a pronounced citrusy-floral aroma and flavour that can range from mild to strong depending on environmental variables. Citrus honey is well suited to using in sweets, drizzling over yoghurt, spreading on bread and sweetening teas.
about the producer
In 1896 Giuseppeantonio Iacovanelli decided to buy some hives in the nearby village of Villa Santa Maria, in the province of Chieta, in order to increase the production of honey and feed his children, whose number increased to five in that year. His decision initiated a tradition that continues up to the present day as the passion for beekeeping and honey has been handed down from father to son in the Iacovanelli family.
ADI Apicoltura was founded in 1982 by Dario, the grandson of Giuseppeantonio, ADI being the abbreviation of Apicoltura Dario Iacovanelli. Today his sons Piero and Fabio continue the business which is recognised throughout Italy as a leader in the sector.
