Gourmet honey usually comes from the smaller beekeeper, who has the inclination and will take the time to keep honey separate that has been harvested from a single flower source. This requires extra time and labor to produce a superior product of gourmet honey. Each honey has a separate and distinct taste of its own, depending upon the flower that the nectar was collected from.

Some of the well-known gourmet honey’s are harvested from different regions of the world. In the United States gourmet honey can be collected from the following nectar sources.

      Star thistle honey, Washington, California, Wisconsin, and most of the lower 48 states,
      Tupelo Honey, Florida and Georgia
