LEGENDARY HONEY FROM THE BEAUTIFUL ISLAND OF IKARIA, GREECE

"Anama/Pefko"

Honey from the "ancient healing island" of Ikaria is of particularly high quality and is revered by the famously long-lived Ikarians.

Ikaria is free from industrialization and due its mountainous and undulating rocky terrain, conventional farming is not practiced. The island is therefore free from chemical pollutants that contaminate both air, land and water, leaving the bees to gather their pollen in a pristine, if not perfect, environment.

“Honey from Ikaria contains anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and is eaten often” says Mr. Beuttner, who named Ikaria one of the 5 “Blue Zones” in the world for longevity.

Anama (heather)/Pine: This varietal of Ikarian honey is a combination of Anama (Heather, aka "Reiki") and native Ikarian Pine. It is not a blended honey, the hives are located in an area of the island where the Heather plants grow with the native pine trees.  It is very thick, robust, rich and delicious.  It has a woodsy, earthy flavor profile with floral notes and hints of minerals.  Perfect with bread, yogurt, cheese or by the spoonful on its own.

The best there could be.

Excellent! No words can capture this magnificent flavor. The piney mellowness adds a note that transcends what a honey enthusiast could have ever hoped for.

I thought I didn't like honey. Have just been buying the wrong one. Beautiful subtle and not too sweet. So good.

A jar of heaven

Mouth-watering goodness in a jar! I was at first concerned it might be too 'pine-y', but it is perfect. It is a few moments of sunshine and myth on a spoon. Makes me wish I was on the slopes of Olympus. I can't wait to try the other flavors!
