Smooth. Wild. Southern.
A Honey of a Partnership
Dixie Wildflower Honey flavored vodka is a regional collaboration with Savannah Bee Company. To make this undeniably Southern vodka, we infuse our core Dixie Southern Vodka with southeastern wildflower honey from Savannah Bee Company to create a delicious flavored vodka with a touch of sweetness.
Savannah Bee Company
“Savannah Bee Company strives to live as bees live: symbiotically with nature and in a manner that contributes positively to the world around us. We continually improve the ways in which we operate for our customers, the environment, and each other.
“Our Georgia Wildflower Honey is complex, sweet and robust. It is a polyfloral variety, meaning many types of nectar were collected by our bees to create it. Depending on the whimsy of the bees, those nectar sources are most likely white holly, gallberry, sawtooth palmetto, and tulip poplar. We think our Wildflower and Dixie Vodka are the perfect flavor combination and hope you will too.”
– Ted Dennard, Founder and Beekeeper
The Bee Cause Project
Ted Dennard, founder of Savannah Bee Company, created The Bee Cause Project, a nonprofit installing public observation beehives to educate and empower the community to protect honeybees. As of 2018, The Bee Cause grant program has installed over 350 hives across the United States and in four countries around the world.
A portion of proceeds from Dixie Wildflower Honey Vodka benefit The Bee Cause Project, which will work to support the health of honeybees in the Southeast by increasing the number of hives in the region and helping to educate the public on their importance. Vulnerable to the elements, bee populations and the farmers they support are often severely impacted by our changing weather, especially recent natural disasters. As these communities recover, we feel that supporting beekeeping is an essential component in protecting our food system, as well as the natural environment.
To ensure the Southeastern farming community has beekeepers and pollinators for generations to come, we believe it is essential to support grassroots organizations, like The Bee Cause Project, who are increasing the number of bees and beekeepers in our communities across the country.
