Mount Olympus Mountain Honey - A Very Fine & Unique Mountain Honey from the Fabled Seat of the Gods


Mount Olympus, a UNESCO biosphere reserve, boasts unique flora and fauna, making the honey from this region unlike any other.

The mountain's distinct microclimate, thanks to its closeness to the sea and rapid elevation, fosters a rich diversity of terrain, climate, and vegetation. This variety provides bees with an exclusive selection of flora and tree sap, enriching the honey's complexity and flavour.

Thus, the honey from Mount Olympus is a direct reflection of this biodiversity, capturing a wide array of flavours and aromas, making it truly unparalleled and a testament to the mountain's ecological wealth.

Its status as a UNESCO site underscores the pristine, untouched nature of its ecosystem, which contributes to the distinctive qualities of the honey produced here.

Key Features:

  • Cold-Pressed: Retains natural enzymes and nutrients.
  • Unpasteurized: Preserves natural flavours and health benefits.
  • Coarse-Filtered: Ensures purity while keeping beneficial pollen.
  • 100% Raw: Maintains all natural properties.
  • Wilderness Honey: Sourced from the untamed habitats of Mount Olympus.
  • Artisan Beekeeping: Crafted with traditional methods for superior quality.
  • Unique Monofloral Honey from a unique environment: A rare taste experience.

In 2023, despite challenges in many parts of Greece affecting Oak honey production due to unusual weather patterns, our dedicated beekeeper, Dimitris, managed to harvest a special batch from higher elevations on Mount Olympus, rather than his normal Mount Olympus Forest.

This variant is slightly lighter, infused with the essence of mountain herbs and less honeydew from Oak, yet maintaining many of the same beloved characteristics of his Mount Olympus Forest, which he wasn't able to produce because of the rainy weather washing off much of the honeydew from the Mountain Oaks.

This honey has a complex flavour profile, enriched by the indigenous herbs and flowers of Mount Olympus along with some Oak, Fir and Pine forests (including trees like the rare Bosnian Pine). The flavour begins with earthy undertones, evolving into a spicy finish that lingers.

Colour - Dark brown.

Common Uses Being such a rich deep honey it's great at breakfast time, either on porridge,  buttered toast, or just enjoyed straight from the spoon!

Why Raw Honey is different to Processed Honey - Raw honey generally means the honey has not been processed, it has come from the hive to the jar with minimal interference. Most supermarket honey is highly processed to make it look more attractive, it has been drained of pollen, often heated and blended. Raw honey tends to vary from batch to batch, this is because it is not processed in a factory, filtered or heated to look homogeneous, it changes with the season and climate and what the bees feed on, we will update this fact sheet according to which batch we currently have in.

Crystallisation:-  Please know that raw honey does crystallise and is a natural process of raw honey (therefore we cannot except returns on honey that may have crystallised). We indicate on the website the state of each honey - either runny or crystallised but be aware this is to the best of our knowledge and the state can change quickly.   If you want your honey runny and it has crystallised it's very easy to return it to runny go to this link Runny Honey  or see this section under our FAQ's Why Is My Honey Crystallised?

We only supply raw honey because we believe this is how all honey should be.  If you don't want your honey to crystallise then raw honey probably isn't for you.
