How to Pair Honey and Cheese

A cheese board isn't complete without honey's smooth texture and light sweet taste - it's the perfect homage to your fromage.  The best honey and cheese pairings complement one another to create a delicate balance of the five taste groupings: sweet, salty, bitter, tangy, and umami (aka savory).

Watch our Honey Tasting Video or check the tasting notes on each Honey's page for a flavor profile.  Try a smooth buttery honey like Tupelo Honey to soften a stronger, tangy blue cheese.  Use textured honeys like Acacia Honeycomb or Whipped Honey to support soft cheeses like brie.  More complex caramel honeys- like Sourwood's symphony of flavors -are amazing when paired with a nutty cheddar or manchego.
