Raw Sourwood Honey
Authentic raw sourwood honey is a delicate, smooth and delicious honey. It’s also one of two favorite American honeys.
The unique mono-floral raw sourwood honey has distinctive flavors, including anise, spice, coves and maple and caramel taste. A smooth and syrupy texture, Sourwood Honey is a beautiful amber color. This lends to a buttery sensation and aroma of cinnamon and cloves. For these reasons, the aftertaste has a slight gingerbread twang.
Sourwood honey pairs very well with cheeses, fresh fruit, granola, oatmeal, pastries and breads.

Raw tupelo is the other favorite American honey. It is lighter in color, buttery in flavor with a mild and magical taste.

We also commonly source Tupelo from the Savannah river banks in Georgia.
