Our Ikaria Honey is harvested from wild thyme, herbs, and floral patches that cover the island's steep slopes, bathed in the Mediterranean sun. These unique conditions infuse our honey with a distinctive, rich flavor and an array of health-enhancing properties. It's no wonder that this honey is a staple in the diet of some of the world's oldest living people (aka centenarians).

Natural Energy Booster: Enjoy a natural surge of energy without the crash, making it a perfect start to your mornings or a healthy pick-me-up during the day.
Supports Digestive Health: With its natural prebiotics, Ikaria Honey promotes a healthy digestive system, enhancing overall health and well-being.

Tasting Notes:
Flavor: A robust sweetness with hints of thyme and a complex bouquet of floral undertones.
Texture: Smooth, rich, and perfectly spreadable, it melts delightfully on the tongue, making every spoonful a unique healthy treat.

Sustainable Practices:
We are committed to sustainable beekeeping practices that protect and preserve the natural environment of Ikaria. Our honey is harvested by Vasilis Kapnisis using traditional methods that ensure the health of the bee populations and the purity of the product.

How to Use:
Drizzle Ikaria Honey over Greek yogurt, blend into a morning smoothie, or stir into a soothing cup of herbal tea. It's also perfect for sweetening homemade dressings and marinades, adding a touch of Ikaria's secret to your culinary creations.

About our Beekeeper: Vasilis Kapnisis, Raches Ikarias

"I'm Vasilis Kapnisis, a beekeeper born in 1983 on the blessed island of Ikaria, known for its longevity. Inspired by a local mentor, I started beekeeping at 17 with just three hives. My passion for bees grew, leading me to dedicate myself entirely to this craft. Today, I cherish caring for my bees and crafting our region's distinctive varieties of honey."
