Raw Greek Organic Oak Honey - 5kg - 17.5+ Active, Certified, Platinum Award Winning
Awarded the coveted Platinum Award at the 2020 London Honey Awards
Certified Organic, wilderness honey from traditional award winning Greek beekeeper.
In the Forests on Mount Holomontas, the Oak trees produce a sap, which the bees of Dimitri and Vicky make into a thick and spectacular honey.
Platinum Award winning honey in the London Honey Awards and the Great Taste judges said of the flavour: "This is a grown up and sophisticated honey, that is very special indeed... This honey is dark and sultry, with a thick and syrupy body & complex bittersweet aroma." Also: "An unctuously thick, glossy, deep amber honey with characteristic rich muscovado notes on the nose - but the palate is a surprise with rich, woody caramel a plenty but also a bright lift, almost citrussy, presumably from the herbal foraging, which adds a further dimension and lifts this to another level. A really great example we felt."
The Raw Honey Shop is proud to be the only UK stockist.
About the beekeepers: 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 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.
Please know that raw honey does crystallise 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.
