After a very dry spring came a very dry summer! The apiary that produced this forest honey is set in a beautiful and secluded south facing slope at 1100 m high. The nature there is untouched, and the forest is dense. The very low atmospheric humidity meant that our bees could barely collect any nectar from the wildflowers, but our hard-working bees starting to work on Honeydew.
Honeydew is a sugary secretion made by a scale insect, this insect feed on the sap of the pine trees.
Honeydew Honey also called Pine Honey or Fir Honey is a very rare thing especially in Cyprus, it is much harder for the bees to collect and transform in honey, but the result is exceptional!
This sweet and spicy honey is full bodied with a thick texture and a dark amber color. The spices notes will balance harmoniously with resinous fragrances and finish on an subtle oak wood savour. .
