Awards, Studies & Research

The Samothrace Bitter Honey was awarded internationally with the GREAT TASTE 2 Star.

The Experts’ comments:

“Savoury, marmalade notes on the nose. A pleasing texture, which is thick without being grainy. This honey certainly delivers on bitterness, though this is balanced by the natural sweetness. A unique and intriguing product.”

“This is a superb honey, beautifully expressing the characters of both the arbutus and the tree heather. The buttery caramel background is perfectly balanced with bittersweet notes and a savory maltiness on the finish.”

“The judges found this to be a complex and rich honey, with the sweetness and bitterness balanced. They felt its depth of flavour and grainy texture offered a fruity and floral identity.”

“A pollen-rich golden honey, just starting to crystallize. We loved the meld of arbutus bitterness, heather minerality and overriding florality. Nuanced on the palate, certainly not cloying, yet nicely persistent with lifted florality on the finish that remains just gently bitter-sweet.”
