Organic Oak Honey from Vikos-Aoos National Park (8.8 oz)

Nomad

$20.95

Dark, impressively thick, and superlatively rich in flavor and therapeutic qualities, this unique organic oak honey is produced from bees lucky enough to live in one of the most densely forested and pristine parts of Greece, the Vikos-Aoos National Park in Epirus, in northwestern Greece, on the northern slopes of the Pindus Mountains. A land of deep gorges, tall, lushly forested mountains, rushing rivers, crystalline lakes and labyrinthine caves, this Natura 2000 ecological preserve is one of the UNESCO geoparks. You can taste the dense oak and imagine its shade and ancient wisdom in every spoonful of Nomad’s fabulous oak honey, one of the few, indeed, produced in Greece. It’s not surprising that this wonderful honey has won the London’s prestigious Great Taste award for three years in a row. Oak honey is obtained not from the nectar of flowers but rather from the molasses that oozes off acorns, the fruits of the oak tree. It is extremely dark, almost black, and very rich in iron. It is a salve for digestive problems and is high in antibacterial agents.
