Honey is like a fine wine that is created from flowers instead of grapes. The term "varietal honey" refers to the honey gathered from a single type of blossom. Each type of nectar has its own flavor and sugar composition depending on the flower that produces it, therefore the honey reflects the unique taste of the bloom. Savannah Bee Company is the leader in honey purity standards. Any honey poured by Savannah Bee Company as a specialty varietal honey must have a minimum of 80% pollen count. This ensures that the honey exhibits the best flavor and texture possible from the blossom crop. They take pride in their honeys' flavor and purity, so they don't process, over-filter, or add anything at all. These artisanal honeys are beautiful gifts for any sweet occasion, as well as a delicious and nutritious treat for any pantry.
Lavender Honey is among the most prized varietals of honey. Savannah Bee sources their wild lavender honey from the remote mountains of Southern Spain, where the bees harvest nectar from the most beautiful Lavandula stoechas luisieri every year during late spring and early summer. This premium international honey has a faint, floral aroma, and a subtle fruity finish, that is more delicate than other monofloral varietals. Its light color, slightly purple hue, and gentle flavor notes make it particularly complementary in mild tea and as a sugar substitute in baking.
