    • Tested in the laboratories of Minerva Scientific as 25+. The most potent honey we have ever sold.

    • Raw, natural, and one of the purest honeys because of the remote forest area it comes from.

    • This raw Oak honey comes from a wilderness uninhabited region in the northeast of Greece, close to Bulgaria and Turkey.

    • Strongly antibacterial, coarse-filtered, unpasteurised, and enzyme-rich.

    • This is a potent high-quality Oak honey, that is very thick and delicious.

    Where it comes from: Menelaos has his hives close to the Greek border with Turkey and Bulgaria in a very wild uninhabited area. Forest and scrubland stretch for miles and this is an ideal place for Oak trees to grow and for bees to make honey without contamination from pollution, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. 

    More on this honey: This is a very thick honey with a flavour to die for. 

    You immediately get a sense of stewed fruit,  like plums or prunes, with a malty molasses undertone. It is very pleasant and doesn't have the bitterness of Chestnut honey.

    This honey is dark brown but not as dark as some Oak honeys, possibly because there is a little Sidr and Broom in the honey (which may have added to the potency).  Also, the sample jar I have at the office has started to thicken, so this honey may crystallise, probably due to the Broom. and a little nectar from some herb flowers, such as Oregano. This does not affect the potency.  

    About the beekeeper: Menelaos is a dedicated beekeeper who often sleeps in the forest close to his bees during the honey production season. He follows organic principles and is working to gain organic certification.

     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.
