Our consistent dedication to quality and high production standards has been rewarded by winning prizes for two consecutive years at the Great Taste Awards.
Our proudest moment was when our Ellopia Wild Thyme Honey from the Greek islands was named Ambient Product of the Year 2014 at the 2014 Great Taste Awards, standing out from thousands of other food products.
Out of the 10,000 products that entered into Great Taste in 2014, only 153, including our wild thyme honey, have been awarded 3 stars. A panel of supremely talented judges re-judged and tasted yet again the 3-star winners to finally agree on the 2014 Top 50 Foods. Out of those Top 50 Foods, the major winners in each category are awarded a Golden Fork Award. We are honoured that our Wild Thyme Honey was awarded the Golden Fork for Ambient Product of 2014.
….“This lovely honey has a deep golden colour and a wonderful intense thyme flavour”.
“Glorious amber colour and viscous texture. Tere are intense floral notes and the aroma and flavour of thyme come through beautifully (…). A truly delicious honey”.
“…It has a real purity of flavour. We love the thyme flavour you are left with on the palate. Beautiful – well done.”
Judges’ comments at the 2014 Great Taste Awards
In the following year, our Autumn Heather Honey distinguished itself at the international Great Taste Awards 2015, winning a Gold Star.
These were some of the judges’ comments:
“Lovely texture and consistency. A very smooth honey with no bitterness or harshness in the throat.” “A pleasant, but mild floral note.”
“A thick honey with lovely bouquet. Smooth mouthfeel with delightful length of flavour.”
