Foodie Buzz: Louis Vuitton Launches Honey Line

Here's a fun story from luxury website Luxuo: In April 2009, super-swank design house Louis Vuitton installed a trio of beehives on the roof of its Parisian headquarters. Two years later, the buzzy guests (as many as 200,000, the site estimates) have gathered 165 pounds of nectar, and produced enough honey that Vuitton decided to bottle the fruits of its apiculture.

The product is called La Belle Jardinière, and says in fine print at the bottom of the label, “Produit a Paris par Louis Vuitton” (Produced in Paris by Louis Vuitton). La Belle Jardiniere will reportedly be distributed as a gift to friends of Vuitton.

All of which begs the question—what would you pair with Louis Vuitton honey? Any special teas that would benefit from this rarest of condiments? Share your recommendations on Twitter or Facebook above!
