California Sage Blossom Label

We source our black sage honey from a beekeeper in the Sierra Foothills, where it blooms in years with heavy late winter rains. The last few years of drought have meant we have been unable to replenish our stock of it. We were down to our final barrel this November when we decided to roll the dice to brew “one last batch” and pray for rain this winter. Well, we certainly got the rain and should get a bumper crop of sage blossom honey this year. We like to think that our little leap of faith helped bring its return.

This varietal is one of our most popular for its light salvia aroma and beautifully enticing honey note. We would imbibe this fresh, crisp beauty in the evening, between the main course and dessert, or alongside a Sunday Brunch.
