The Heather Honey (sousoura) is a product of great nutritional value and that is why it is extremely suitable for the stimulation of our organism. It has the distinctive full flavor of a bitter candy and it encloses all the intense earthy scents of the heather flowers. Its special red-bronze color is turned into a wonderful caramel color after its crystallization which is carried out too quickly (1-3 months after harvesting). The Heather Honey is among the elite of the Greek honeys and it is especially preferred by demanding consumers. Taste this unique honey and experience the Greek nature!

The Heather Honey is collected from the nectar dews of the autumn heather which is known as “sousoura”-(Erica verticillata) and it is extremely stimulating for the bees. A successful flowering is equivalent to a second spring for the hives! In France the Heather Honey and also the honey of Chestnut and Lavender are considered the best. The famous French gingerbread is made exclusively with Heather Honey.

The organic Heather Honey “FASILIS” was given the first award in its category in the International Competition of Organic Beekeeping “BIOLMIEL” for two years in a row (2010 – 2011). It is collected from the gorges and the green slopes of Mount Parnon (Arcadia) in the Southeastern Peloponnese at an altitude ranging from 200m – 800m from early October until late November. The production is unpredictable of course because it depends on the weather conditions. The area of Mount Parnon and the gorge of Leonidio (Monastery of Elona), where the honey is collected, are part of the Network Nature 2000. It is a European Ecological Network of areas that host natural habitats of some very important at European level species.

After harvesting, the honey is carefully filtered and packed directly into glass jars in our modern facilities. Then it is stored in a dark, dry place at low temperature ready to be released for consumption. The rich Greek nature coupled with the diligence of the family Fasilis give out an excellent product.
