This selection is a wonderful mix of raw honeys from mountains and forests - all unfiltered and unheated. This selection has been put together to give the best possible taste experience of Greek honey, which is very highly regarded and follows an ancient beekeeping tradition right back to ancient Greece.
The honeys are brought to us by Thomas, a young Greek beekeeper, and his family which includes his father Giorgos, uncle Kostas, cousin Panos, and sister Elena.
Thomas is planning to take over his father's hives, which are on the sides of mountains and in secluded forest glades. He has great enthusiasm for raw honey and natural hive products.
Raw Greek Mountain Oak Honey has a deliciously rich and mineral treacle flavour with hints of cooked apples and plums. The aftertaste lingers only briefly with a slight sourness. The aroma is similarly fruity, reminding us of cold spiced fruit sauces. The flavour and aroma make us think this could go very well with a fruitcake or Christmas pudding.
Raw Greek Pine Honey - Thomas' raw Greek pine honey is a unique type amongst the tree varieties, and is regarded as one of the best honey varieties available. It has a strong, sweetly pine aroma with waxy, spiced overtones, similar to cloves or other warm, winter spices.Â The flavour starts with a strong sweetness, which comes on very quickly with dark, dry fruit and prominent cooked fig flavour, finishing into a sweetness that lingers at the back of the throat.
Raw Greek Thyme Honey has a mild and grassy foretaste like dry mountain herbs (You can really taste the thyme!), breaking into a large, fruity flavour similar to sweet and sour summer fruits such as raspberries and red currants, then dissipating quickly to a mild and clean finish. Very slight overnotes of the soft sweetness of fennel or aniseed without the strong flavour of liquorice.
Please know that raw honey does crystalise 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.
