in thinking of quintessence, we like to use the french term – cru – a word much used in the world of wines. it’s more expressive and apropos than the one commonly used here. quintessence is a way of thinking about honey in which awareness is indispensable, a full appreciation for the work of the bees for the flowers and vice-versa. walking the thin line between the plant world and the animal world, that was the challenge. honey is the point of contact between earth and sky. you have to be there at the right time, the fleeting moment when the flowers give their very best. quintessence is the tale of the acme of the bloom, when honey reaches its maximum integrity. there’s a magic moment when the flower is more generous with its nectar, more intense in aroma and taste. it is collected in combs of virgin beeswax, placed in apiaries of particularly suited areas.
