Review: Stubbees Bourbon Infused Honey

Share

Way out in St. Augustine, Florida, you’ll find Stubbees, a honey producer with a product that should be of particular interest to the Drinkhacker crowd: Bourbon Infused Honey, “a bold blend of small batch crafted bourbon and floral honey. With help from bourbon aficionados, chefs and foodies alike, we’ve curated this Napoleonic inspired honey, a luxury all on its own. It’s perfect for glistening your meats as they roast, or giving a lavish flavor to your favorite cocktail.”

So: Put it in a boozy dessert, dollop it on your charcuterie board, or use it in lieu of another sweetener in your favorite cocktail. With just two ingredients (honey and “non-GMO bourbon”), how could anything go wrong? (Note: There isn’t much bourbon in the bottle as it doesn’t carry any alcohol labeling, but a warning on the label says it should not be fed to infants less than 12 months old.)

And really, it can’t: This is almost entirely composed of honey, and the bourbon influence here is extremely mild, just a hint of vanilla atop what is otherwise a flavorful and authentic but straightforward honey, without a whole lot of nuance or any particularly noteworthy tasting notes that you wouldn’t expect. The bourbon does thin out the honey a bit, making it easier to pour and a bit less messy, but come to think of it that’s nothing you couldn’t achieve on your own. Considering a bottle of Sue Bee in this size is about 5 bucks, you have to really like the presentation (which is nice) in order to make this investment worthwhile. Or more likely: You have to really like the person to whom you’re giving it as a gift.

Reviewed: Batch #1/8, 2017.
