Sourwood Honey

Sourwood Honey has a floral and light taste with hints of baking spices and anise. The honey’s color is typically light amber with a slightly gray or brown tint and its texture is defined by a smooth, caramel buttery quality.

Sourwood Honey is most abundant in the mountains of North Georgia and Western North Carolina. The Sourwood tree blooms in late June through the month of July, ​beginning at lower elevations and moving up the mountain where the last blooms may not finish until early August. The Sourwood tree blooms during a period when few other nectar-available flowers are blooming, ​creating the opportunity for ​harvesting nearly pure Sourwood Honey during favorable years.
