About Me

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.
