    The ILÍA Wild Forest and Thyme Honey has an earthy, intense flavor, with floral notes of thyme shining through in a rich, sweet finish.

  • Terroir

    KERÓS is produced from the unique Athenoelia olive trees growing on one of the tallest and historic mountains in Greece produce a flavor like no other. These trees are beautiful and truly ancient, with some over a 1000 years old. They grow in the hillside rocks and must be harvested carefully by hand. Being among such majestic trees with their gnarled trunks and bountiful branches was something that touched our soul.

    The ILÍA Wild Forest and Thyme Honey is produced in an arid climate and altitude, creating some of the most intense flavor in the herbs and trees that grow there. This honey comes from bees foraging on wild thyme and trees that are indigenous to the area. The beekeeper and his ancestors use ancient methods and has his bee hives follow specific locations in the mountains throughout the year.

The Source & History of Kerós

Olive trees in Vordonia are among the oldest in the world, dating centuries and even millenia. Gianni's family has lived in this quaint village on the outskirts of Sparta on Mount Taygetos for many generations. They harvest an ancient Athenian varietal in the arid rock, which creates truly elegant flavors and promotes good health. The oil from this tiny village is renowned by the locals.

The Source & History of Ilía

Stavros lives in Vordonia. His family have been beekeepers across the mountains of Sparta for generations, producing the finest honey in the region. Years ago, a Japanese delegation arrived unannounced and asked for this specific honey. When the locals asked why they had come, they explained that the Emperor of Japan had received and tasted the honey by chance, and loved it so much, that he sent them here to discover why it was so special.
