Van Morrison said it best when he sang "she's as sweet as tupelo honey/ just like honey from the bee." The white tupelo trees that draw beekeepers April through May can be found from the tip of South Carolina to the southeastern coastal part of Georgia on to the northern panhandle of Florida. With this mysterious and unique terroir in mind, can’t you smell the jasmine, salty air, and sprawling ferns stretching across this region.
Tupelo Tasting Notes
cinnamon + butterscotch + nutmeg + floral jasmine + fruity pears
Sip on a glass of champagne or cava while enjoying tupelo honey drizzled over some aged Percorino. Add some Marcona almonds for texture.
And should you crave something sweet, drizzle a little tupelo honey over pistachio ice cream.
