Certified Organic, spectacular multi award-winning wilderness honey from traditional Greek beekeepers.
A beautiful set of two (2x250g) of our most awarded Greek raw honeys from beekeepers Vicky and Dimitris whose bees work the trees and plants in a Natura 2000 reserve.
- Oak - awarded the coveted Platinum Award at the London Honey Awards with a high 17.5+ Active Rating.
Pine - awarded the coveted Gold Award at the London Honey Awards and 2 stars at the Great Taste Awards.
The Great Taste judges said of the flavour of the Oak: "This is a grown up and sophisticated honey, that is very special indeed... This honey is dark and sultry, with a thick and syrupy body & complex bittersweet aroma." Also: "An unctuously thick, glossy, deep amber honey with characteristic rich muscovado notes on the nose - but the palate is a surprise with rich, woody caramel a plenty but also a bright lift, almost citrussy, presumably from the herbal foraging, which adds a further dimension and lifts this to another level. A really great example we felt."
Of the Pine the judges said of the flavour: 'Dark and sultry, this honey has the deep caramel sweetness of dates and the aroma of pine needles and leather. The texture is rich and syrupy....The overall flavour fades in sweetness and almost becomes savoury....with a herbaceousness that persists.... a sophisticated honey to be savoured."
The Raw Honey Shop is proud to be the only UK stockist.
Please note the Pine is runny and the Oak is crystallised.
About the place the honey comes from and the beekeepers: Vicky and Dimitris' bees work the trees and plants in a Natura 2000 reserve in the area of Mount Holomontas in Chalkidiki. It is a forested reserve, a very pure and wild area, with soil and climate that enables the bees to produce very special honeys - with a depth and intensity of flavour that you only find in the very best honeys. Organic beekeepers Vicky & Dimitris believe that honey in the jar should be as it was in the hives.
More on honeydew honey: Thick runny honey known as a honeydew, because it is from the sap and resin of the tree not from flower nectar. Honeydews are high in oligosaccharides, which are known for their prebiotic qualities- aiding digestion.Please know that raw honey does crystallise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey.
