HONEY OF THE ROCKS
WHO WE ARE
Thymeli by Kopanezos family
is the continuation of the most traditional family that deals with nomadic beekeeping, based in Kalymnos.
It first started during the 1950s, in Myrties of Kalymnos, by our ancestors Magriplis Nikolaos and Irini and the art of beekeeping was passed on to their children Antonios Kopanezos and Magriplis Maria and further on, to their children. Based in Vathi of Kalymnos and depending on the season, our family carried out cell movements throughout Kalymnos and Kos with the sole aim of maintenance, development and safety of the bee colonies.
For the last 17 years the beekeeping tradition of Kopanezos family is continued by Drossos Kopanezos and his son Antonis Kopanezos, who constitutes the 4th generation of beekeepers in the family. The nomadic beekeeping practices that the family follows are based on traditional methods of beekeeping and aim to produce honey with the highest quality.
Every year, to confirm that the highest quality of honey is produced, the honey is passing through an extensive series of examinations by the certified beekeeping laboratory of the Aristotelio University of Thessaloniki. According to the quality control, the honey produced is of high nutritional value and its content has high percentage of thyme pollen grains.
Thymeli has managed to win 5 consecutive distinctions at the Great taste awards in London and is recognized as one of the 1000 best food products arround the world. It has also won an international award in Turkey and a quality award from Gastronomos.magazine.
