A kind of honey that is especially rare as far as its flavor and taste is concerned, connected with a unique quality is the Chestnut honey.
Its production requires the beehives to be moved to a natural beauty forest in Mount Athos (Halkidiki). Chestnut honey is full of amino acid, trace minerals, potassium and magnesium. It has dark brown colour and high dietary value for the human. They are available in a limited quantity.
Chestnut honey is an intensely aromatic honey, with a strong taste as well as moderate sweetness. It has a strong antimicrobial effect, helps the gastrointestinal tract, speeds up blood circulation and is a very good tonic for the body thanks to its high nutritional value in trace elements and amino acids such as potassium, magnesium, manganese and tannins due to the tree of chestnut.

Meet the Producer
Mouriki Greek Premium Honey is a family that has been serving nomadic beekeeping since the early 1960s. Based in Dervenochoria, Voiotia and a bee population of over 2,500, as modern honey nomads, we transport our bees throughout Greece, to mountains, forests and meadows rich in flowering, fully protected from human intervention. Starting from Messinia we reach Thasos and from Central Macedonia and Halkidiki to Central Greece and Evritania.
We recently created a permanent apiary consisting of 200 beehives on the island of Kimolos and Milos in order to produce rare Cycladic Thyme Honey with Wild Lavender. The movement of our bees in so many different places throughout Greece offers us the opportunity to produce top quality honey, rare varieties, something that is proven in practice by the numerous quality and innovation awards we have won in international competitions.
Oak Evritania Honey, Thyme Honey of Fokida and Cyclades, Pine Honey of Thasos,
Heather and Chestnut Honey of Halkidiki are just some of the varieties we produce. 2020 was a milestone year for Mouriki family as we launched new honey packages, supporting the notion that nomadic beekeeping is not just a way of life, can also be high quality art, something that is perfectly reflected in the honey jars of Mouriki Greek Premium Honey. Color and originality in design have a dominant role and come in perfect balance with the colors of nature and the unique flavors. The strong elements of geometry, the ancient Greek and at the same time modern lines create the feeling that the vase is a small work of art.
Innovation in honey packaging, awarded for their unique design, seals the new era, givingMouriki Greek Premium Honey a unique identity in the market. But what does not change is the traditional varieties of honey, the taste and the journey of aromas and flavors, something that one immediately realizes when opening a jar of Mouriki Greek Premium Honey.
