About The Unique Muth Bottles
Sugar Bottom Farms is proud to offer their raw honey in these beautiful antique bottles. This container design was popularized by C.F. Muth of Cincinnati, Ohio in the late 1800’s, around the time when the honey extractor was invented. Previously, honey had been sold primarily in the honeycomb. The honey extractor allowed liquid honey to be spun from the combs, to be bottled and marketed in convenient shelf-stable containers.
Beeswax is secreted from a special gland on the worker bee abdomen. The bees then use the wax to build familiar hexagon-shaped honey comb cells. These efficient cells are designed to hold the most amount of honey while requiring the least amount of wax. Once filled with honey, the cells are capped with beeswax.
As beekeepers, we strive to preserve the beeswax honeycomb by uncapping the cells and spinning out the honey, so that the bees can reuse the comb. The wax caps are collected, melted and formed into large blocks at the time of honey harvest to make a variety of beeswax products.
