GIOIELLO® Citrus Fruit Honey distillate





On 3rd April 2000 Cristina, Antonella and Elisabetta Nonino introduced GIOIELLO®, the distillate of ‘Purity’, the Aquavitae obtained from the distillation of pure honey in all its taste varieties.
The distillation of honey presented difficulties especially in the fermentation phase which varies from honey to honey. Only a great amount of experience gleaned over many years of work has allowed the Nonino family the opportunity of making this new extraordinary Distillate.
Besides the fermentation difficulties, the Noninos had to overcome bureaucratic and ministerial category-related obstacles due mainly to the origin of the primary product: honey, being of non-vegetal origin, was not regulated.
For this reason, in order to market the Honey distillate, the Noninos had to ask the governing Ministry for the publication of regulations for Honey distillates in the Official Bulletin.

Primary Product

Citrus Fruit Honey.
The production is very limited as it is strictly governed by the qualityof the honey, which must necessarily come from ecologically pure environments.

The Honey Distillate, GIOIELLO®, is transparent, crystal clear, dry or soft or aromatic, according to the
honey being used.


In stainless steel tanks under vacuum and in temperature controlled conditions.


From six months to a year in stainless steel tanks.

100% Distilled with artisanal method

Batch method with the removal of the heads and the tails, in special artisanal copper batch steam stills renovated by Benito Nonino for the distillation of honey. The distillation happens very slowly to allow the volatile components, responsible for the perfumes, a proper evaporation period and subsequent condensation, in order to keep intact the precious organoleptic characteristics of the chosen honey.


With a big aromatic intensity, its perfume recalls the scent of orange and lemon flowers and the juicy fruit of Mediterranean gardens.
Before tasting, Gioiello® should be allowed to rest in the glass for some minutes: on exposure to oxygen, the perfumes are enhanced and the nose/palate harmony is perfected.

The aromatic intensity and the Mediterranean fragrances of GIOIELLO® - Distillate of Citrus Fruit Honey burst out in this refined cocktail, made precious by 24 carat gold dust, which bears the name of the place where it was born: the Cocktail Bar GOLD in Milan.


It goes particularly well with those cheeses which have great personalities, with foie gras, with dry desserts and with all desserts based on honey or ice-cream. To enhance its perfume, it can be added to sauces to accompany game, white meats and fish.
