  • Flavor

    My arid climate and closeness to the sea gives me a herbal, savory flavor with an intense thyme flower aroma and pleasant, sweet finish.

  • Terroir

    The rocky soil of Crete contains a rich geological mix that includes limestone and even sea-dwelling fossils. The island is the furthest south in Greece and has the most arid climate of southern europe. Flavors of everything that grow here are more intense and hearty due to the dry air, the mediterranean sea on all sides, and the altitude of the mountains.

The Source & History of Iríni

Mano lives in Sitia. He and his family have been beekeepers across the rocky, sea battered shores of Sitia, producing highly prized organic honey.

From the Chef's Corner

"I tasted the herbs in the fields and on the mountains of Crete. The intensity of this thyme creates a brilliant honey whose taste takes you back to this magical place"
