The scarcest Greek Honey
The ONLY with Protected Designation of Origin
Premium Organic Honey "Vanilla Fir” is the only Greek Honey with Protected Designation of Origin (PDO). It is harvested in our own organic apiaries, from the black firs of Mount Mainalon in Arcadia - which reaches a height of 1500m. It is a renowned product for its taste and low sugar concentration. It is light in color, a shade between pearl and vanilla. We gave it its first name because of its vanilla-like color, but in no way does it imply vanilla in any form.
From Mount Mainalon, in Arcadia, Greece at a height of >1,500m
Mainalon is the tallest mountain in the Mainalon highlands of the Peloponnese, located in Arcadia, Greece. In antiquity, the mountain was especially sacred to Pan (the Great God of tremendous power, Lord of fertility, and wild nature). Natura (2000) cites Mainalon as the Greek fir’s best representation in Peloponnisos. The mountain is home to many forests of the Abies Cephalonica species of Greek fir, which is native to the mountains of Mainalon. It is a medium-sized evergreen coniferous tree growing to 25–35 meters tall, which lives at altitudes of 900–1,800 m. This is where our bees harvest our Organic Vanilla Fir Honey treasure, making it special in taste and origin.
It is thus the most unique and superlative honey in the world. You will never taste a higher masterpiece of organic bee craftsmanship. It is the Mona Lisa of honeys.
Unique worldwide honey-treasure
Unparalleled caramel-like taste
Smooth. Soft. Delicious. A true, deep, rich treasure of Vanilla-Caramel flavor. You will recognize it as an instant classic. It stimulates your tongue with a sweet, buttery taste, and leaves you with a warm, woodsy aftertaste. It stands out with its distinctive appearance: "golden" reflections rippling through it like a gold leaf honey rainbow, with notes of pearly whites. That's why we call it "Vanilla".
