Gold Winner in the 2021 London Honey Awards

The Raw Organic Greek Chestnut Honey from Mount Athos has a deliciously rich and deep molasses flavour with a bitterness reminiscent of the aroma from freshly brewed coffee. You will still be tasting this honey in your throat 10 minutes and more after you have eaten it.

 

Where it comes from: Mount Athos is both the name of the mountain and the peninsula situated in north-eastern Greece. Also named the "Holy Mountain", it represents an important centre of Eastern Orthodox monasticism.

Colour: It is very dark - with a brown-reddish colour.

About the beekeeper: This honey was brought to us by Thomas, a very talented young Greek beekeeper. 

Thomas was able to get this incredibly rare honey from the Monks of Mount Athos, who have been practicing the ancient monastic tradition of beekeeping for hundreds of years. 

More on Chestnut honey: This is a dark thick runny honey which has deep, full bodied, slightly smoky, earthy tones. These deliver a more savoury taste than most other honeys and an element of bitterness in the aftertaste.

The bees love to feed on the sap that comes from the tree as well as the blossoms. The tree lends a beautiful and unique taste to the honey, the nutty flavour carries through as well as a taste a little similar to maple syrup but slightly more rich and malty.  This Chestnut honey has a slightly bitter taste. However, Chestnut honey varies a lot, differing considerably from one area to another. Some are mild, some are bitter.

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.
