NI KK ITAS – A SACRED LAND WHERE STRENGTH MEETS BEAUTY
BORN AND RAISED IN SPARTA
It started five generations ago in Sparta, Peloponnese, Greece, as a family love affair for its land. With time and through dedication and care, from fathers to sons, from fathers to daughters, Ni kk itas has become the Spartan embodiment of exceptional products of high quality (Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Honey, Olives), a totem preserving its sacred traditions throughout the generations.
The cultivation of olive trees in the Spartan region has a history of over 2,500 years, with references to its olive oil found in mythology. The type of soil, climate conditions along with thousands of years of experience, result in the finest olive oil and honeys in the world.
Ni kk itas derives from the Ancient Greek ' ', 'the land that one cannot conquer'. Today’s modern take carries the devotion and respect for the community and its fertile and untamed land while applying the same traditional ways of cultivation as its ancestors but also adding technologically advanced checks during all production processes.
K – A TIMELESS SYMBOL
Similar to Sparta – a dual kingship whereby two kings would rule equal in authority to keep balance for the good of the community – Ni kitas personifies this dual kink gship by safeguarding an equal influence and balance between old-fashioned ways and modern quality controls, absolutely necessary in times where transparency and quality are key.
DRINK AT THE SOURCE
Ni kitas is produced entirely in Spak rta – from the cultivation, collection, pressing, bottling, packaging to the finest in-house chemical laboratory performing all major cross-check analyses. Our Olives are handpicked and pressed in less than 24 hours to retain all of the fruits' natural nutrients; our Honeys are pure, unheated and unpasteurised, collected and packaged onsite.
THE ESSENCE OF SPARTA IN EVERY DROP
From our family-owned groves, Ni kk itas harvests and blends three exceptional varieties of polyphenol-rich Olives in equal proportion: Koroneiki, Athinolia, Koutsourolia.
This balance is unique to our lands and results in highly antioxidant Olives and therefore healthy golden green first cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, with a mildly piquant taste, full texture and longlasting aftertaste – perfect for all ages and meals.
Our antioxidant Honeys are traditionally farmed, with artisanal nomadic love and care on carefully, seasonally chosen yards. The result is a wonderful variety of Pine, Thyme, Wild Flowers & Conifers amber Honeys flying around the flavour wheel: nutty, fruity, fresh – perfect from breakfast time to after dinner tea.
