Navarino Icons Greek honey is harvested from colonies of bees that roam freely to collect nectar from the flowers blooming in abundance in the region around Messinia. Naturally thick and golden our pure honey is unheated and unfiltered, to preserve its nutritional benefits and highlight its delicate taste and aroma.
It is cold packed by hand without the addition of artificial additives or flavorings. A piece of fresh honeycomb straight from the hive, is added to the jar. This is raw, unheated and unfiltered honey-- considered to be amongst the purest honey in the world.
The ancient Greeks were well acquainted with honey’s value not only as a food but also as a source of longevity. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said: “honey serves food, health and energy”. In Greek mythology, nectar was the food of the Gods and Zeus himself was brought up on honey. It was believed that Eros, primeval god of love, passion and fertility, dipped the tips of his arrows in honey to fill a lover’s heart with sweetness.
