About Honey

Honey is the natural medicine

Over four thousand years ago, honey was used as a traditional ayurvedic medicine, where it was thought to be effective at treating material imbalances in the body. In pre-Ancient Egyptian times, honey was used topically to treat wounds.1. Egyptian medicinal compounds more than five millennia ago used honey. The ancient Greeks believed that the consuming honey could help make you live longer. Even the Prophet Mohammed glorified the healing powers of honey. The Quran also praises honey's healing ability: "And thy Lord taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in (men's) habitations; Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth), and find with skill the spacious paths of its Lord: there issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colors, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought." The beneficial properties of honey have been explored in modern times, and there is evidence to suggest that these historical claims may hold some truth.

About Bees

Apis dorsata

It is the largest of the honey bees. It builds an open single comp of huge size about a meter in diameter. The comb is fully exposed and huge from inaccessible branches of trees, along the sides of steep rocks in the forest and even from the walls, rafters and other parts of buildings. It produces plenty of honey and the annual yield from a colony is about 37 kg. The rock bee honey represents a major portion of the honey sold in our markets. It is impossible to domesticate it because of its irritable and ferocious nature.

Apis dorsata

It is known as little bee since it is the smallest of three species of Apis. It is seen only in the plaints. It also builds single but small combs on bushy plants and corners of roofs. It yields very little honey, about 0.5 to 1.0 kg. per year from a colony.

Apis indica

It is the common Indian bee found both in the forests as well as in plains throughout our country. It is smaller than rock bee but larger than little bee. This bee builds many parallel combs in the cavities and hollows of trees, caves and such other hidden sites. It is mild and is the only form capable of being domesticated and is commonly reared in South India. The annual yield of honey is 2 to 5 per colony

Melipona iridipennis

The dammer bee is very tiny with a vestigial sting and is different from the former three species in appearance and habits. It inhabits crevices in walls and hollow trunks of trees. The comb is made up of a dark material called ‘cerumen’ which is a mixture of wax and earth or resin. It is very poor honey gatherer and yields only 60 to 180 per year.

Apis mellifera

It is the Italian bee which swarms less and has good honey gathering qualities, yielding about 45-180 kg per year.

A beehive is an enclosed structure in which some honey bee species of the subgenus Apis live and raise their young. Though the word beehive is commonly used to describe the nest of any bee colony, scientific and professional literature distinguishes nest from hive. Nest is used to discuss colonies that house themselves in natural or artificial cavities or are hanging and exposed. Hive is used to describe an artificial/man-made structure to house a honey bee nest.

A bee smoker (usually called simply a smoker or a smokepot) is a device used in beekeeping to calm honey bees. It is designed to generate smoke from the smouldering of various fuels, hence the name.

A honey extractor is a mechanical device used in the extraction of honey from honeycombs. A honey extractor extracts the honey from the honey comb without destroying the comb. Extractors work by centrifugal force. A drum or container holds a frame basket which spins, flinging the honey out. With this method the wax comb stays intact within the frame and can be reused by the bees.

Beeswax (cera alba) is a natural wax produced by honey bees of the genus Apis. The wax is formed into scales by eight wax-producing glands in the abdominal segments of worker bees, which discard it in or at the hive.

Honey barrel may be a new term to many whisky drinkers, but it's seemingly been in the bourbon distiller's lexicon forever. “I've been around Kentucky distilleries for 40 years and have always heard the term. It simply refers to a particularly good barrel and there is nothing mythological about that.
