Rare unblended honey made from the nectars of the wild thyme that grows spontaneously on the dry stone walls that criss-cross the Iblei Mountains of southeast Sicily. This intensely aromatic golden honey was prized by the ancient Greeks for its therapeutic properties and is ideal added to hot drinks or enjoyed with creamy cheeses. It chrystallises in cooler temperatures.
For six generations Michele Olivia's family has bred indigenous Sicilian bees and harvested their honey from the wild flowering plants of the Iblei Mountains, in eastern Italy. Their skill and accumulated experience in traditional bee husbandry, cold extraction of the honey and the family pride in its excellence guarantee natural, raw honey of rare taste and quality.
