Corsican honey

Savour the fruit of the scrubland…

A wide diversity of aromas and flavours can be discovered within Corsica's range of CDO/PDO (Controlled/Protected Designation of Origin) accredited honey varieties.

This authenticity is the result of a special type of land:

  • Corsican vegetation: wild, natural and indigenous ;
  • Corsican bees: adapted to the climatic conditions and geography of the island ;
  • Corsican people: the art of honey production has been passed down through the generations, originally inspired by Corsica's varied, complex flora.

The CDO/PDO Corsican honey range is made up of a number of different varieties:

  • Printemps: soft, floral, fruity. It is harvested from the May onwards in the lower valleys and grassland.
  • Maquis de printemps: caramel and cocoa flavours. Harvested throughout spring, from the sea up to the mountains.
  • Miellats du maquis: malty, persistent, long in the mouth. It is harvested from May to September in woodlands, maquis (scrubland), oak forests and rock rose banks.
  • Châtaigneraie: with tannins and long in the mouth. Harvested from late June to September from the chestnut forests.
  • Maquis d’été: aromatic and fruity. Harvesting begins in August in the high valleys of the Corsican mountains.
  • Maquis d’automne: strong and bitter in the mouth. This honey, with a strawberry tree flavour, is harvested from November to February. 

By relocating the hives from the sea up into the mountains throughout the seasons, Corsican bee-keepers harvest honey which reflects a completely unique landscape, seasonality, flora and perfume. Ranging from sweet to bitter, delicate to domineering... Corsican honey varieties never fail to delight.
