Honeybees play a vital role in our daily lives. Small but mighty, these buzzing bugs pollinate fruit and vegetable crops. They also produce beeswax used in many cleaning and beauty products. The Savannah Bee Company educates children and adults about the importance of bees and offers specialty honey bee-inspired products in Savannah, Georgia.
Established in 2009, the Savannah Bee Company has three locations in Savannah: Brighton Street, River Street, and the Wilmington Island Showroom on Johnny Mercer Boulevard. Each offers a variety of health and beauty products as well as varietal honey, gifts, and accessories. The next time you’re in the area, visit the Savannah Bee Company for a one-of-a-kind experience you’ll never forget.
The Best Things to Do at the Savannah Bee Company
Mead is a delicious alcoholic drink made of fermented honey and water. It comes in still, sparkling, semi-sweet, and sweet varieties.

You’ll sample six varieties from Ambrose Cellars, Redstone, and B. Nektar Meadery and will learn all about the mead production process. Be sure to purchase a bottle to bring home with you!
Bee Garden Tours

A honey expert will explain the history of the Savannah Bee Company and will educate you about honey bees, pollination, beekeeping, and beeswax production. The tour guide will then take you to the bee garden and open up a beehive to explain some of its inner workings. Afterward, enjoy a tasting of different honeys and learn about their geographic origin, flavor profile, and suggested food pairings.
