Mellifera Bees - goods
Mellifera Bees produces distinctive, hand-crafted honey infusions of exceptional quality.
Each jar contains unprocessed honey harvested from ethically managed hives in backyards similar to yours, in neighbourhoods not so far from where you live, across Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
Suffused with a rich bouquet of aromatic flavours, the honey’s unique character is produced from the wild wanderings of Mellifera’s bees and enhanced with a delicate blend of spices or fruit. Each ingredient is chosen for quality and freshness and sourced exclusively from small, independently owned British Columbia companies specializing in certified Organic, Fair Trade comestibles.
Served alongside other high quality foods, Mellifera honeys pair beautifully with wine, artisan cheeses and crusty French bread. Enjoy it drizzled over homemade ice cream, stirred into hot beverages, added to dressings or alone on a spoon.
Delectable, elegant and lovingly prepared, Mellifera products make ideal gifts for all occasions.
Borrowing its name from the Latin Apis Mellifera, or “honey-bearing bee,” Mellifera Bees was founded by beekeeper Melissa Cartwright, whose first name means “honey bee.”
Bathed in sunshine, effervescent with good health, the blond perfume of nature’s cheeriest fruit imparts vim, vigour and zing to the wisdom and sophistication of our naturally spicy honey.
More than a tonic for whatever ails you – be it a sore throat or a soggy disposition – Mellifera Lemon Infused Honey is bright and balanced, offering a panacea appropriate to every meal.
Jar Size: 4oz
Through the alchemy of sweet and sour, Mellifera has produced the perfect addition to grilled chicken or salmon, fruit salad, or a simple cup of hot water. Try it also with Rooibos tea for sunny addendum to a cloudy afternoon.
This is liquid love.
One of nature’s most potent aromatics, vanilla has long been used in cooking, perfume and as an aphrodisiac. And now the wonderfully fragrant seed pod finds a new expression, in honey.
Caressing the senses with spicy floral notes and the potent tingle of local wildflowers, beekeeper Melissa Cartwright pays homage to the ancient symbiotic relationship between the intoxicating yellow blossom of the vanilla orchid and the gentle grazing of the pollinating bee with Mellifera Bees Vanilla Infused Honey.
