Greek Fir Honey - Sparta, Mt. Taygetos 16oz
SOLD OUT - WE ARE EXPECTING A SHIPMENT IN LATE JUNE/EARLY JULY
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.
