Our raw pine honey also comes from the same part of Greece as our raw fir honey. Our beekeeper uses the same methods as he does when producing his fir honey.

The area where the bees collect the honeydew is free from pesticides, chemicals and fertilisers, instead, he uses organic hops to reduce parasitic mite populations in his honey colonies. This makes the Greek honey completely organic.

Pine honey accounts for almost 65% of the total honey production in Greece and is a type of forest honey made by bees collecting honeydew. It is a darker honey with a stronger taste, a higher mineral content and encompasses particular nutritional and therapeutic benefits.

Studies indicate that honeydew honeys, such as pine honey, have stronger antioxidant properties compared to the more common floral honeys. It is an excellent treatment for sore throats and coughs.

Due to its anti-bacterial anti-viral properties, it can also be applied directly to the skin to hasten the healing of minor burns cuts and other bacterial infections.

A study in 2012 compared 18 honey varieties, both floral and forest honeys, and it found that Greek pine honey had the strongest anti-bacterial properties amongst all the tested kinds of honey. (The Journal of Microbiology, Biotechnology and Food Sciences, 2012).

It is a rare category of honeydew honey with a wonderful flavour and an aromatic fragrance; it has fewer calories than pollen honey and a unique taste that is not too sweet and loved by honey lovers.

Pine honey crystallises slowly due to its low glucose levels and as such will remain fluid for more than 18 months.
