Honey, mixed with water and left to ferment, gave rise to the oldest alcoholic beverage produced by man. In ancient times, this digestive was used to enliven ancient wedding banquets that lasted an entire lunar cycle: hence the term honeymoon, still in use today. Continuing the tradition, Poli's Miele is a liqueur made with grappa and acacia honey, with essential oils of mug pine, juniper, mint and sweet-scented verbena which offers delightful balsamic sensations.
Miele di Poli is a grappa-based liqueur with intense aromas of acacia and orange blossoms. On the palate it is sweet with secondary notes of balsam, juniper and mint; overall delightful and rich.
