This supreme quality and one-of-a-kind, as it is extracted only in Greece, honeydew honey is so characteristic of the Greek land that even the scale insect that lives in the sap of the pine trees and produces the honeydew is called Marchalina hellenica. Collected through a long period from April to November, it contains all the nutritious elements that render it an invaluable superfood, with its rich body and flavour making it a favourite among honey connoisseurs.

  • 100% raw honey
  • Aroma: malty and spicy pine forest aroma
  • Colour: dark amber
  • Flavour: less boldly sweet with nutty and distinct woody pine overtones
  • Properties: high nutritional value, rich in antioxidants and trace elements (calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc) with high antiseptic action and therapeutic properties. Low sugar concentration makes it ideal for a low-calorie diet. high nutritional value and up to four times more intense antioxidant action than any other forest honey worldwide
  • Crystallization: it does not crystallize easily due to the low sugar and water concentration.

Crystallization is a natural and uncontrolled phenomenon that causes pure raw honey to become thick and cloudy. Honey is a super-saturated solution of two sugars: glucose and fructose. Glucose sugar separates from water and becomes crystals, while fructose remains as a liquid. The best way to convert honey into smooth liquid is to apply a heating method with warm water that should not exceed 35°C, otherwise, its nutritious properties will be destroyed. Microwave use is to be strictly avoided.

Our journey leads us to some of the most outlying and intact forests of Chalkidiki and Northern Greece. From April until November, we drive bees through these verdant and arduous terrains and relocate them every thirty five days so that they obtain the dainty honeydew excreted by trees.

Honey pasteurization is totally prevented since it is extracted below 35°C, which is the temperature normally found in a hive so that all therapeutic enzymes and exquisite aroma remain intact. The honey is also unfiltered in order to retain the beneficial pollen residue and organic materials. After it is collected from the beehives, it remains in maturation and clarity containers for five to ten days before being bottled to perfection.

All processes involved, from the harvesting and extraction to the packaging, are conducted manually and bear the century-long greek tradition of beekeeping combined with the most contemporary expertise in honey production. The result is an incomparable and precious food delivered to your table and palate untouched as if it had just been collected from the honeycomb.

The outstanding packaging of NIRRA honey carries along all the best of the Greek nature the wood of the mountainous forests in its lid and the grains of the coastal sand in the jar. Specifically designed and manufactured in order to ensure the full sustainment of the original honey properties as well as to bring out its multifaceted colours, it is as unique as its invaluable content.

The lid, made of solid beech wood, is hand-crafted with special attention and care to the detail and brings along a tangible element of the nature where honey is born, as a symbol of the close bond between the product and the forest.

Truly, this exquisite jar is a treat to your aesthetics, sealing up the quality and retaining intact this precious treasure. 

NIRRA honey is as rare and untouched as the lavish, virgin forests where its harvesting takes place. The wide range of the mountainous altitude offer a rich diversity in numerous indigenous plants, from chestnut to pine trees and wild oaks, adding both complexity and uniqueness to its character and supremacy to its quality.

Most of these remote forests, lying in the land of Chalkidiki and Northern Greece, form part of the Natura 2000 network that aims to ensure the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats, thus preventing the use of pesticides or other agricultural techniques that may harm the virginity of the terrain.

The result is the yielding of a truly nutritional and strictly biological treasure born from the generous and unequaled land of Greece.
