HONEY IS UNREFINED
Exceptional taste & aroma.
The Chestnut Honey is collected from the nectar and the honey dews of the Chestnut (Castanea sativa) also known as “Queen of the mountain”, in the forests of the Southeastern Peloponnese .Chestnut honey is a real feast of flavors.
It is a unique type of honey less sweet than all the others with a slightly bitter taste. Its special aroma and its racy flavor make it distinguish..
In Greece, apiculture does not involve the intense exploitation of bees and organised monocultures of mass produced, low cost & low quality honey.
Greek apiculture in protected Natura 2000 regions allows bees to feed exclusively on pure pollen, far away from chemicals, pesticides & industrial zones.
Due to the dry climate of Greece, honey has low water content and therefore it is slightly processed.
This has as a result a more aromatic, more dense and richer in flavours and ingredients honey.
