  • Honey is a natural treasure, known for its beneficial properties since ancient times.The ancient Greeks valued honey & its properties as a gift from the gods. It is no coincidence that honey and bees play a leading role in mythology. Hippocrates distinguished honey for its healing properties and recommended it as a medicine in
    various conditions.

    Where the fir forest meets the thyme fields on Mt Giona in the Municipality of Delphi, our permanent apiary is located. This rare natural coexistence, results in our fir and thyme honey of a limited production which is a worldwide innovation and is available in luxurious numbered packages.
    The natural combination of fir and wild thyme that grow in high altitude, give honey wonderful levels of flavour , coming in waves of evolution. The aftertaste is equally delightful and the length extraordinary. This is a honey with increased healthy characteristics and rare aromas.
