Featured Brand: Big Island Bees

Posted in Featured Brand on October 12th at 4:14 pm

For over forty years, Big Island Bees has been a family affair. Since 1971, the Puett family has been keeping bees in beautiful Hawaii, and their apiaries have expanded from a small operation into a thriving business of 2,500 hives that currently house 190,000,000 bees. A fourth generation beekeeper, Garnett Puett harnesses the knowledge gained from his family’s rich legacy to fulfill the company’s mission: providing the finest single-floral, artisanal honey anywhere!

Big Island Bees, features three varieties of honey that are Estate PackagedRaw, and Organic. The company only sells honey that is produced by their own bees, and the unique blossoms of Hawaii produce flavor profiles that aren’t found anywhere else.

A delicate, distinct flavor perfect for tea drinkers because it doesn’t overwhelm the taste of the tea. Found only in Hawaii, the Lehua blossom produces a white, smoothly crystallized honey.

Big Island Bess adds Organic Hawaiian Cinnamon to their white organic Lehua honey to give it a marvelously fragrant nose and a warm, gently spicy taste.

This variety is characterized by an ambrosial and subtly spicy flavor and has a light, amber color. It pairs wonderfully with cheeses and vegetables.

If you’re interested in learning more about the company, or would like to make a purchase, please contact us today.
