Towering above the ancient city of Sparta, Mt. Taygetus is the highest peak on the Peloponnesus and the source of our superlative Greek Fir honey. Famous for wild herbs, the mountain is also densely forested with the native Greek Fir tree. It is one of few places in the world where bees produce honey from Fir trees. A true delicacy, it has a beautiful amber color, resinous with complex flavors of candied pistachio, sassafras and roasted chestnuts.
Klio Greek honey is designated single-origin. We source from specific locations with unique terroirs which result in highly sought-after, exceptional types of honey prized among the Greeks. Collected and packaged for us on-site by local beekeepers, our limited-supply honey is pure and unprocessed: raw and unpasteurized, never heated, minimally handled.
I made my favorite cookie, Finikia, with the Greek honey from Sparta. It’s especially personal as my grandparents are from the area the honey was collected. These were for my Yiayia and she would have loved them.
Honey or olives?
Luv the honey when I can get it.
It’s a darker honey and delicious whether in tea or on a cracker. It has a great flavor.
