Our Oak honey is harvested each July in the pristine Arcadian mountains of the Peloponnese in Greece. The bees move freely among the native oak trees found throughout the remote and wild terrain where the hives are kept. The unique flora of the region contributes to a honey that is dark, thick, and complex in taste. In studies, Oak honey has been shown to have the highest antioxidant content of all honey varieties, including Manuka honey.
Available in three sizes: 127gr, 275gr, 400gr
Tasting notes: Unique and complex. Earthy, warm, almost smoky. Mild sweetness with notes of caramel and molasses, and a tangy finish.
Serving suggestions: This strong and serious type is the perfect partner for aged and alpine cheeses like Cheddar and Gruyere. Works beautifully as a glaze for pork dishes. And if your idea of heaven is anything like ours…try it on a warm buttermilk biscuit. You’re welcome.
Serving & Storage
Do not feed honey to infants under one year of age.
Store at room temperature.
This honey variety is naturally lower in moisture and sugar and more resistant to crystallization. Should your honey crystallize, place the jar in a warm water bath (not over 100 degrees) until crystals melt and it re-liquifies.

Portoula has dispelled the myth for me that honey can’t be healthy. The flavor is pure and decadent and the extra boost of antioxidants allows me to indulge daily. Tea, toast, oatmeal or straight up, I’m grounded to this beautiful earth and grateful for Greece.
