Description

Awarded a coveted Gold Prize in the London Honey Awards 2019

Thomas' raw Greek fir honey starts with a mild nuttiness then explodes into a bold, juicy sweetness with hints of savoury herbs and a slight sourness in the aftertaste, similar to the sourness experienced at the end of blackstrap molasses.  The taste lingers sweetly on the palate for a good time.

It has grassy, herbaceous smell lingering within the honey sweetness mild and green somewhat similar to fennel or winter savoury.

This Fir tree honey is harvested from altitudes of at least 1500 metres on a mountain close to Argithea in Greece.

Colour: When runny, the colour of this honey is dark amber to nearly black, sometimes with a slight greenish tint.

More on honeydew honey: This is a dark thick runny honey it is 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.

About the beekeeper: It was brought to us by Thomas, a young Greek beekeeper, who is planning to take over his family's hives, which are in secluded forest glades in and around mountains of central Greece. He has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.

First experience of raw honey!

And wow. It’s very different in the best way to honey I’ve tried before. My only problem is it’s going down too fast! Customer service is knowledgeable and quick, highly recommended.
