Launched in 2009 by David Luks, Deluxe Honeydrop Beverages offers delightful, organic honey infused juices and tea. Very light and refreshing, the beverages were developed out of necessity by David Luks. Read his inspiring story below!

An Interview With Deluxe Honeydrop Beverages Founder, David Luks

Tell Us About Your Eco-Inspired Company.

In 2006 I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Fortunately, I was able to survive that scare and due to my diagnosis, started to learn about the benefits of an organic and natural lifestyle. In 2008, while reading research from Johns Hopkins and the University of Memphis, I learned honey has many medicinal benefits such as:

  • Honey alleviates sore throats, soothes throat better an any cough syrup, protects against chronic conditions such as obesity and hypertension
  • Honey is lower on the glycemic index (64) relative to sugar (100), making it an attractive sweetener for diabetics
  • An alternative for athletes as it contains glucose and fructose; glucose burns slow for lasting energy, and fructose burns fast for instant energy and performance.
  • Honey also naturally contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

In 2009, I launched Honeydrop Beverages. Honeydrop currently includes three organic honey infused organic juices and one tea. They contain only 40 calories per serving (2 servings per 16.9 oz PBA-free, recyclable bottle). Each bottle has a ‘spoonful’ of honey with these heavenly flavors (more on the way by December 2010):

1. Bee Alive – Blood Orange

2. Bee Calm – Chamomile

3. Bee Strong – Blueberry

The flavors are USDA Organic Certified, sweetened ONLY with a spoonful of organic honey from Brazil. Honeydrop cannot use local honey because US farms do not have the 2-mile ‘drift” into crop that is required for certified organic requirements. Honeydrop also does not use honey with GMO’s (genetically modified organisms).
How Do You Choose To Go Green in Your Own life?

Getting diagnosed with cancer really scared me. I started to think about the choices I made in life, and specifically the hormones and genetically modified foods I was eating relative to my cancer diagnosis. Getting cancer was the worst but best thing for me as it made me “go green” with my life.

Can You Offer Any Encouraging Words For Those With a Small Sustainable Business?

Keep at it. It is very hard starting a small business, and one that is sustainable that might have access to less available ingredients or supplies. Nevertheless, it is important work that helps everyone who touches it.
