The Arbutus Honey is collected from the nectar dews of the spring Arbutus (Arbutus Unedo) and its great nutritional value (similar to that of the Heather Honey) make it extremely suitable for the stimulation of our body. It has an intense, strong flavor that tastes like bitter caramel and challenges the most demanding consumers. Its color is dark bronze and it crystallizes very quickly (2-4 months from its harvesting). It is a special type of honey offered to us directly by the spring slopes of Mount Parnon.

 

 

The Arbutus Honey is harvested in this virgin region from April until late May and since it is the first production of the year, bees offer their pollination services with great enthusiasm. If the flowering of the Arbutus is successful that means that we will have a successful beekeeping year and moreover healthy and strong hives.

 

 

Keep in a cool, dry, dark and odorless place (< 15°C for long storage period). The arbutus honey crystallizes relatively quickly. The crystallization of the honey is a natural process that depends only on its plant origin. It returns to its original state with moderate heat. (bain-marie).

Meet the producer

FASILIS COMPANY founded in 1930.

You may already know a lot about bees or maybe you only know the basics. For example, you know how many factors contribute to the collection and production of honey? Or why the Greek honey is considered one of the best on the planet?

 

Or even that every year the same apiary at the same time will produce a little honey or very different than last year depending on what flowers favoured by the weather of the year. In this respect HONEY is a bit like wine.

 

They can have "cellar" buying different kinds of honey and educating our palates even honey in the same category but different year if we keep in proper conditions.
