The flavour here is strong and distinctive, but with far less bitterness than its Italian equivalent.
In 2014, the chestnut honey of Dr Honey was named “honey of the year” by the Hungarian National Beekeeping Association.
Dr Honey says: “Due to the high mineral content, chestnut honey is beneficial for anaemia, fatigue and loss of appetite”.
Who is Dr Honey, and what is special about the honeys?
For decades, Hungarian honey has been the gold standard.
Queen Bee, Andrea Viszlai, and her family are the owners of Dr Honey. They are beekeepers committed to small-scale production under strict standards, to achieve honey of exceptional quality and purity.
Their honey is harvested within the Tokaj region of North-East Hungary. The honey is collected from their own hives and is never mixed with honey from other sources. This guarantees that the honey is GMO-free.
How do they produce single-flower honey?
Some secrets have to be kept, but at dead of night, they drive their ’nomadic’ hives to the forests and leave them in situ for the 10-15 days that the trees or flowers are in full pollination. Then they drive the bees home and extract the riches by cold pressing.
