The sacred honey of Delphi…

The sacred honey of Delphi…

In this land, the light enchants everything. Honey is the magic filter. The father of the gods, Zeus, was brought up with it. It was honey that gave strength to the god Apollo and gave Pythia the greatest power in the world, that of foreseeing the future. The twelve gods of the Greek mythology were eating ambrosia, a food primarily consisting of honey and nectar, because they believed that this would make them immortal and powerful. Mellin is a new brand which is exclusively inspired from Greek mythology. This is evident from its name Mellin, a synthesis of the words Ellin (Greek) and Mellon (future), as well as from its packaging.

The choice of the jar and the overall packaging is based on the golden number Phi (Φ) and Euclid’s geometry. The trunk of the tree (fir tree) which is chosen as its trademark reminds one of a column; its branches are made up of spirals while its top is a reference to the head of a bee. On the two sides, there are meander shapes which signify the Delphic Epsilon (letter E). The Delphic maxims Know Thyself and Nothing to Excess and shapes inspired by Apollo’s Temple in Delphi, seal the honey that has travelled as far as the land of the rising sun… The ancient saying by Democritus 'Moisten the inside with honey and the outside with oil’ written in an ancient Greek font completes the approach of this new brand which is based on ancient Greece.

Mellin’s beehives are found at the Mountain Giona at the location Raches, while the workshop is located at Malandrino in Fokida. The product is an organic fir honey of a limited production (approx. 1,000 pieces per year) which is produced at Giona’s fir forest where natural thyme bushes thrive allowing them to produce organic fir honey with thyme and organic thyme honey. Recently Mellin honey was included in the list of the best organic honeys in the world and the company managed to win two silver medals in its first participation in the international organic honey competition Biolmiel which takes place annually in Italy.

The founder, Constantinos Rellos is a young man passionate about ancient Greek history and a 3rd generation honey producer. His aim was to produce a contemporary product which carries a history of thousands of years, and make it travel across the world. Mellin has already received international awards such as Great Taste Awards.
