Barrie Chef Buzzing over New Craft Liqueur; Honey Bee Elixir

Honey Bee Elixir, one drink saves one honey bee

A new locally made craft liqueur will have you feeling good for more than the obvious reasons. Produced here in Barrie, Honey Bee Elixir is setting out to be an ethically-responsible company by helping re-introduce more bees to local hives.

Made with 44 bee pollinated all-natural botanicals, lightly sweetened with honey


The eco-friendly product is the brainchild of Farmhouse owner/Chef and T.V. personality Randy Feltis. “One drink means one honey bee will be introduced back into the hive,” explains Feltis. “We are trying to achieve world-pollination, one drink at a time.”



He says that for every 1.5oz consumed of Honey Bee Elixir, one new honey bee will be introduced into one of their hives – which are located locally at Dickey Bee Honey. “We have the both Peter Dickey and beekeeper Jaun Carlos Noguez Ortiz taking care of our hives.” Dickey is a fourth generation beekeeper and Jaun holds the Guinness World record for wearing 100,000 live bees on his head and shoulders for one hour and 42 seconds.
