About the beekeeper: Vicky and Dimitris' bees work the trees and plants in a Natura 2000 reserve in the area of Mount Holomontas in Chalkidiki. It is a forested reserve, a very pure and wild area, with soil and climate that enables the bees to produce very special honeys - with a depth and intensity of flavour that you only find in the very best honeys. Organic beekeepers Vicky & Dimitris believe that honey in the jar should be as it was in the hives.
More on honeydew honey: This is a dark thick 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.

Mountain honey facts: Bees kept at higher altitudes will have a much shorter period of time within which to gather nectar and make honey before the seasons change. This makes high altitude honeys rarer due to their smaller supply. Mountain honeys also tend to have a slightly thicker consistency due to their low moisture content.
