The same techniques used for producing wine are also used for producing Honey Wine.
With a mixture of 32% honey and 68% spring water, we obtain a Honey Wine at 14° of alcohol. The honey – wine mixture is left to ferment for 3 to 4 weeks at a temperature of 25°C.
During this time, the honey slowly transforms into alcohol.
The mixture is then left to settle for one year at a temperature of 10 to 15 degrees, and the colour lightens. Slowly but surely the Honey Wine develops without losing the taste and smell of our carefully selected honeys.
The product is extracted from the top so that honey can be added to obtain the desired sweetness before being transferred to oak barrels. After a long aging process, the Honey Wine is bottled and ready for consumption.
The strong flavour of the Madagascar Vanilla compliments the peppery honey taste.
In Brittony, Honey Wine is called ‘chouchen,’ and in the Pyrenees, we call it The Bear’s Dance.’
Before arriving on your table, our Honey Wine has aged for 18 months in oak barrels.
