Smoky Mountain Wildflower Honey:
Our signature raw wildflower mountain honey is crafted from organic apiaries high atop the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina. Nutrition-packed with a delightfully fierce floral flavor, this toxin-free, all-natural honey is as good for you as it is delicious. Our 2021 edition from our home and Panthertown apiaries is different from last year's honey. This is an intense polyfloral wildflower with deep, mineral rich notes and tremendous reach and slightly spicy end. The lasting flavors are no doubt due to the blend of tulip poplar and of dozens of other varietal spring nectars coming from the Pisgah Forest. This honey will stand up to any food pairing, and just as well all by itself.
Summer Sweet Wildflower:
Our 2021 Summer Sweet Wildflower Honey is a midsummer batch from the Killer Bees Honey home apiary. It has the same intense, robust flavor of our signature spring, raw Smoky Mountain Wildflower Honey, only slightly sweeter. There are several reasons for this. First, it possesses 20% clover nectar. Secondly, as the tulip poplar bloom ages, it produces more glucose. Lastly, the hive girls finished off the honey combs with sourwood which was just beginning to bloom when we pulled the supers. You thus get a rich, caramel flavor ending. All of these factors make for a robust, but sweeter addition to our 2021 spring honey lineup.
Our 2021 Southern Sourwood Fusion is derived from old-growth sourwood and Basswood trees of the Pisgah National Forest. Located on the doorstep of our apiaries deep in the heart of sourwood country, this year's naturally-harvested crop produced a uniquely semi-sweet and floral honey. This honey is a combination the bees created of sourwood and Basswood/Linden. Basswood is a premium honey procured from the blossoms of the Linden tree. Sometimes referred to by Southerners as the "bee tree," this hardwood produces small, flagrant, yellow flowers that drip with nectar. It possesses a balanced, fruity flavor with hints of grapes, pears and even watermelon. Along with the unique buttery, caramel flavor with subtle aromatic anise and spice bouquet of sourwood, the taste is nothing short of floral elegance. Not overly sweet, not overly complex. It's beautifully mild.
