Honey and water. It’s a wonderfully hydrating, energizing combination that dates back to the first Olympics where the athletes used it to fuel their feats.
Our honey water journey began when beverage specialist Michele Meloy Burchfield was approached by Joe Ross, a sports coach at a Pennsylvania boarding school, who had been mixing honey with water to create a natural hydration and energy alternative for his athletes. Michele was instantly
intrigued with the concept and instinctively knew there was a way to make honey water much more playful on the palate.
Two years of studying honey, its benefits and the beautiful bees that make it, a passion soon blossomed into Blume Honey Water, a line of naturally energizing, elegantly hydrating waters that delight the palate and build awareness around bee sustainability. Welcome to the sweetest way to savor life together.
Michele Meloy Burchfield,
The beverage category is Michele’s playground. As a sales and marketing expert with 25+ years of experience, Michele knows the industry inside and out. Michele spent nearly 15 years at the Boston Beer Company where she helped build the Sam Adams brand before starting her own consulting business. Simply put, Michele never loses sight of what really matters for a beverage brand: the liquid inside the bottle. That’s why it’s no wonder she’s helped so many brewers and distillers successfully bring their brands to market. She is also an avid cyclist, skier and tennis player and a green-thumbed outdoorswoman with the backyard gardens to prove it.
Here are some of the friends we can’t Blume without.
