Chestnut honey is a type of monofloral honey primarily produced by bees collecting nectar from chestnut tree flowers (Castanea sativa). It is known for its dark and amber color, which can vary from golden brown to dark brown, and its intense and robust flavor, with subtle notes of bitterness and spiciness. This honey has a thick and granulated consistency, making it ideal for spreading on toast or for use as a sweetener in culinary recipes.

Campania, with its hills and mountains covered with chestnut forests, provides a perfect environment for the production of this honey. Campania’s bees collect nectar from chestnut flowers during the flowering season, which usually occurs between May and June. The collected nectar is transformed into honey inside the hives, where bees dehydrate it and store it for consumption. Once harvested, the honey is extracted, filtered, and bottled to be made available for consumption.
