Sold by: Yoleni's
Country of Origin: Greece
A Greek, raw honey that is collected in the old-fashioned traditional ways in the area of Heraklion, Crete: Get ready to spell "Sweet pleasure"!
The ecosystem of Crete, full of pine trees and aromatic thyme bushes, offers the ideal environment for the production of a very special honey; a honey with a beautiful amber colour, rich thyme aromas and a strong, authentic flavour. "Meligyris" is a company located in Heraklion's village of Arkalochori, in Crete. Manolis Stefanakis, the founder of "Meligyris", is a producer who leaves nothing to chance. When asked, he compares this particular honey to that of the Minoan Era, because of the honey's steady taste and unperturbed flavor. Manolis Stefanakis collects and standardizes his honey in as careful a way as possible to ensure that it remains pure and retains its precious sensory traits. The fragrances of this pine & forest honey are evocative of Greek summers in the countryside and offer a complex bouquet. Amber-coloured, this honey is characterised by intensity, authentic taste, and a caressing, velvety texture. Lose yourself in this sweet and nutritional world of a Greek product that brings you close to the Greek land and tradition in the most delicious of ways.
Prep & Usage
Stir a spoonful of honey in your tea or coffee instead of reach for the empty calories of sugar. Slather some good butter on toast and top it with honey. Drizzle some honey into your Greek yogurt or ice cream or create a wholesome snack by mixing it with dried figs and nuts.
Produced by: Meligyris
Having studied at the Agricultural University of Athens, and being brought up by a rural Cretan family with a beekeeping tradition since 1920, Manolis Stefanakis learned to love nature and respect its products.Showing respect to beekeeping, means, according to him, "not interfering with nature and allowing the bees to do their work without intervening."His scientific training enables him to assess and highlight pure, natural honey. This means that he studies the microclimate of the mountainous regions of Heraklion, Crete. He also spots areas which are located away from agricultural crops, which provide the best organoleptic and biochemical characteristics, and that's where he places his bee colonies. That's how he gets the variety of honey that brings out the individual characteristics of each wildly grown herb.The special care and attention given to the method of collection, but also, the analysis and certification methods that he uses, guarantee a totally natural product of high nutritional value.Manolis Stefanakis is also one of the founders and members of the Scientific Community of Greek Beekeepers.
Honey should be stored in a cool and dry place, away from humidity, light and heat. Keep the lid firmly closed as honey can absorb external odors which destroy its discrete aromas.
