Menelaos' Raw Greek Sidr honey: This is the rare and legendary Sidr Honey, which is collected by bees from deep inside isolated pesticide-free forests. It has been lab tested for authenticity, as there is a lot of fake Sidr on the market. However, Menelaos' passed with flying colours. And this is what we present to you now.
Because this is a particularly pure version of Sidr it has cost us more to buy and this is reflected in the price we have to charge.
Menelaos' Sidr is thick with a rich, lavish and herbal sweet taste. There is a slightly sour and tangy aftertaste. Sidr is a highly valued honey from ancient times and is considered sacred in many religions. It comes from the Lote Tree, which has medicinal properties.
The bees feed on the lavish nectar that this tree produces for a short period in the late Spring, producing this legendary honey.
Where it comes from: Menelaos has his hives close to the Greek border with Turkey in a very wild & under populated area. Forest and scrubland stretch for miles and this is an ideal place for Sidr to grow and for bees to make honey without contamination from pollution, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
More on this honey: Sidr Honey is among the most highly valued kind of honey in the world. In some countries it sells for up to $300 a kilo. The fruits of the tree have high-energy content, its leaves are rich in nutrients such as iron, protein, calcium and magnesium. This honey is mentioned in the considered sacred in some religions.
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.
