Products at Savannah Bee Company in Gatlinburg
Savannah Bee Company is a honey lovers dream! Visitors will find artisanal honey from all around the world at the Gatlinburg shop. According to the founder of Savannah Bee Company, Ted Dennard, “there is honey and then there’s honey”. The nectar from different species of flowers produces honey with different colors, different taste, and different amounts of sugar. However, most large companies only look at color grade when they purchase honey and don’t consider flower variety or flavor. In contrast, Savannah Bee Company curates the very best honey from all over the globe for its customers.
At Savannah Bee Company’s Gatlinburg location, guests will find honey for yogurt, honey for biscuits, honey for ice cream, honey for grilling, and even honey for salads. Some of the most talked about varieties include the whipped honey with cinnamon and the whipped honey chocolate!
In addition to all of the delicious honey you can eat, Savannah Bee Company also offers a number of honey-based health and beauty products. With hand soaps, body lotions, body butters, shampoos, conditioners, beeswax lip balm, and even more unique items, you’re sure to find something you’ll love.
