11-27-18 Tonight we are talking with Kenneth Jenkinson, manager at Savannah Bee Company and fellow mead maker.
Savannah Bee Company strives to live as bees live: symbiotically with nature and in a manner that contributes positively to the world around us.
Savannah Bee Company grew out of Ted’s passion for bees, beekeeping and honey. They carry several honey varietals, including some rarer ones like desert wildflower, tupelo and sourwood. They have an in-house mead and carry several other meadery’s products as well. And they have lots of beeswax goodies, beauty products and of course, a tasting bar for their mead and honeys.
I went to their Broughton St. location last weekend, and it was pretty cool, in a neat old building with high ceilings and lots of wood. We tasted all the meads and honeys, and ended up picking up several of the meads.
