  • Black Sage Honey: Available in 12oz. The taste of Black Sage Honey is so unique it's often polarizing -- you either love it or hate it. But this year's crop is so good, we are certain we can turn all the haters into lovers of this honey.
    Mild and delicious, Black Sage Honey provides a subtle herbaceous flavor ideal for savory recipes or herbal teas. This year's crop is extraordinarily light in color and delicate in flavor. Ted says this year is the best since 2011! "I am so excited to have this honey on the shelves and offer it to everyone. This years taste is extraordinary and everyone will find this fruity, softly sweet taste with earthy notes a favorite for their honey pantheon."
    This rare and exceptional honey is usually harvested only four seasons per decade. It's a real treat, and we are happy when any at all is made, let alone enough to get us through to the next harvest.
    Bees make the honey by collecting nectar from Salvia mellifera, a wild desert plant that grows in the lower Sierra Nevada mountain region. To produce enough blossoms for honeybees to make a crop of Black Sage Honey, this desert plant must get just the right amount of rain at just the right time of year. Many years can pass before black sage plants experience this delicate balance of rainfall and aridness, which is one reason why Black Sage Honey is so special.
    • TASTING NOTES: Slightly earthy. Savory with notes of pepper. Soft sweetness fades off the back of the tongue.
    • REGION: Southern California
    • PAIRINGS: The subtle flavor makes Black Sage Honey ideal for roasting chicken or making salad dressing and sauces. It also pairs well with wine and cheese.
  • Honey for Grilling: Available in 12oz. Honey for the Grill is specially selected and blended to be robust enough to hold up on the grill. The aroma from your backyard barbecue will amaze you … and your neighbors. Start a glaze with the honey, dijon mustard and olive oil mixed at a ratio of your preference (start out with equal honey and mustard and about 3 times as much olive oil). Then you can spice or add the acidity of lemon and/or vinegar to match this glaze to the meat or vegetables of your choice.
    • TASTING NOTES: Rich, smokey, maple-caramel flavor.
    • REGION: Georgia and South Carolina Low Country
    • PAIRINGS: Best for grilling for meat, poultry, and seafood marinades or sauces. Pairs beautifully with vegetable kabobs or wild salmon.
  • Acacia Honey: Available in 12oz. Our premium Raw Acacia Honey is perfection on the palate. This single-varietal gem is made from the delicate nectar of Robinia pseudoacacia, known as Acacia in Europe. The trees are plentiful from Northern Italy to the Ukraine, and the honey that the bees make from its blossoms is a staple in this region.
    Acacia (pronounced uh-KAY-shuh) is highly sought after in the United States. The natural sugar profile of Acacia Honey resists crystallization. It is known for its beautiful light golden color and incredible clarity and is the lightest tasting honey in the world. One spoonful of this fine honey, and you will be an Acacia lover forever.  
    • TASTING NOTES: Delicate vanilla tones. Clean, light and mildly sweet.
    • REGION: Hungary
    • PAIRINGS: Perfect in Greek yogurt or in delicate teas
  • Lemon Whipped Honey: Available in 12 oz. Savannah Bee Whipped Honey with Lemon might just bee the best possible combination of sweet and tart. We stir an organic lemon oil into the honey at just the right amount to give your tongue a ride of lemon then a honey finish. 
    • TASTING NOTES: Tastes like a light and sweet lemon frosting.
    • PAIRINGS: The perfect topping to pound cake, scones or cheesecake. Also delicious in hot tea.
