Learn more about buckwheat honey

Flavoring the gingerbread of yesteryear, buckwheat honey (buckwheat) is a Breton product that almost disappeared due to the depletion of the cereal.

Nowadays, it is still produced in Brittany, but it is also harvested in the Center and in the Massif Central.

Dense, thick brown, this distinctive honey gives off scents and aromas of earth and wood. With a rather discreet smell at first glance, it delivers its powerful flavor in contact with the taste buds.

A delight to enjoy on its own or mixed with the sweetness of cottage cheese ...
