This Pine honey was discovered by Asterios, our man on the ground in Greece. Experience the robust aroma of this organic Pine Honey - the strongest Pine honey we sell. Crafted in Serres, northern Greece it differs from the other Pine honeys we sell, being from the Macedonian Pine, a Balkan Pine variety. It is created by the bees of a passionate father-son beekeeping duo, Dimitris and Kostas, in the picturesque and wild region of Serres, Northern Greece.   

The aroma of this Pine honey is stronger than the Pine honey from the normal varieties we get Pine from.

Artisan Greek Pine Honey from Serres: Indulge in the potent taste of this artisan Pine Honey, meticulously crafted by the bees of skilled beekeepers Dimitris and his father Kostas. Hailing from Serres in northern Greece, a remote region off the beaten track.

Origins: This honey comes from the Macedonian Pine, also known as the Balkan Pine. It is a coniferous tree species native to the mountains of the Balkan Peninsula, including Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, and North Macedonia. These slow-growing evergreens can reach heights of up to 40 meters and live for several hundred years. The trees thrive in the unique microclimate and rich biodiversity of the Serres region, creating a perfect habitat for the scale insects that feed on their sap. The bees collect the sweet secretions produced by these insects, resulting in a potent and flavourful Pine Honey.

Flavour Profile:

As you open the jar, you'll be captivated by the most robust pine aroma of all the Pine varieties we offer. This Pine Honey from Serres boasts a complex flavour profile that sets it apart from the rest. The initial bold, resinous scent is complemented by warm, spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, hinting at the depth of taste to come.

On the palate, the prominent pine essence is beautifully balanced by subtle hints of dark, dried fruits, particularly reminiscent of dates and figs. A delicate, earthy undercurrent adds a grounding element to the honey's flavour, creating a harmonious and satisfying taste experience.

The sweetness, while pronounced, is not overpowering, but rather serves to unite the various flavour notes, leading to a prolonged and pleasing finish. This Pine Honey invites you to savour each spoonful, allowing you to fully appreciate its nuanced character.

The Beekeepers: This honey is the result of the work of Dimitris and his father Kostas, certified organic beekeepers. They are in the network of Asterios, known for his commitment to sourcing the highest quality Greek honey. He has forged a strong partnership with these exceptional beekeepers, allowing us to bring this organic Pine Honey to your table.

Enjoy a spoonful of this artisan Pine Honey, a testament to the wilderness and natural beauty of Serres and the skill of these two organic beekeepers.

Common Uses: This Pine honey would be an exquisite addition to any cheese plate. Its bold, complex flavors pair beautifully with aged, sharp cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano, Pecorino Romano, or aged Cheddar. Drizzle the honey over cheese or serve it alongside crusty bread thickly spread with butter.

Please know that raw honey does crystallise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to wikipedia.
