La Maison du Miel

Enthusiasts have been beekeeping in Paris for an awfully long time. The hives at the Jardin du Luxembourg, for example, were installed in 1856, and they’re still going strong. Over the decades, they’ve sprung up on the rooftops of some of the city’s most iconic buildings – the Opéra Garnier, the Musée d’Orsay, Les Invalides – as well as those of some of the city’s keenest residents. As its popularity as a pastime has grown, so too, naturally, has the volume of honey produced by our Parisian bees each year. Like all the best things to which we can treat our tummies, this liquid gold doesn’t travel far from the hive to the shelf in Paris – we’ve listed here nine shops where you can try it for yourself.
