Nectar of the Buzzing Bees
During our first year in Italy, we took a trip to Slovenia. While staying in the town of Bled, we wandered a little artisan market and discovered Honey Brandy. One of the vendors offered us a sample. It was smooth, sweet and very tasty. We bought a bottle to take home.
We drank the first bottle over the period of a couple of months, then wished we had bought a few more. Finally, this last summer we headed through Slovenia again. We bought one bottle was from a roadside stand, and while tasty, did not compare to the original brand we bought in Bled.
We managed to find the same vendor in Bled and bought 4 more bottles. Every once in awhile I pour myself a shot glass of Honey Brandon just before bed....ah, nectar of the buzzing bees.
