Slisko Honey is an artisan producer of premium quality Croatian honey. We combine the sweet taste of the finest honeybee ingredients with the life-long family passion of traditional beekeeping, continued throughout decades until today. We have always focused on keeping our honey simple, pure and fresh. Honey, pollen, propolis and royal jelly have always played a significant role in our lives producing the finest honey products as nature fully intended - with minimum intervention, preserving the purest original quality.
The Sliško Honey story is one of intrigue, dedication and passion. A story which pleasantly unfolded over decades. We step back in time to the 1950s as it all started in rural Bosnia in a tucked away village named Brezici - the Sliško family home. Back then, as agriculture was the number one way of making a living, the Sliško family new exactly how to get results by dedicating their time to hard-work.
In 1950, the mother figure of the family, Anđa Sliško, the sixth of seven siblings gave birth to Marko Sliško. Unknowing to Anđa at the time, it was that same year yet another life-changing event took place that would alter the course of her and Marko’s destiny.
During one autumn afternoon, as Anđa stepped inside the entrance to the barn, she spotted something under the roof – a small swarm of wild bees. And so the Sliško story was born. At first, they produced just enough honey to cater for the family household. Over time, Anđa’s care, passion and hard-work paid off as 10 years later this family hobby was now looking after no less than 50 beehives.
The family soon moved to Zagreb developing in the catering and hospitality industry yet all along continued to keep the family honey story alive through the years. In 2014, in honour of my grandmother Anđa and my late father Marko, I transformed our family hobby into a passionate business project ready to share the taste of our finest honey with the world.
