Santorini Black Wheat Lager (with honey and citron).

We condition the water for the beer with our proprietary Santorini basalt "Lava rock filter" and then blend the beer with flavourful ingredients of exotic hops, fragrant Santorini honey and Citrus Medica-a rare fruit brought to Greece from Persia by the army of Alexander the Great.

For each 1€ of profit, Volkan will help reduce the Greek National debt by 50 eurocent.
