Honey is a remarkable food and ingredient. The taste, viscosity, colour, and aromas are linked directly to the floral sources available to the bees. In this gourmet food tour, you will join a local food and wine enthusiast, beekeeper, and bon vivant on a honey tasting, an overview of the lifecycle of a colony, and then suit up and visit a beehive!

The honey tasting provides a unique insight into the different tastes and textures created by Hamish’s bees as they collect nectar from different plants at different times of the year. Hamish harvests his honey using the Flow Hive system which allows you to take small amounts of honey at a time without disturbing the bees. In turn you will get to taste honeys collected weeks and sometimes days apart and compare them. All of this alongside leaf tea or plunger coffee and freshly baked scones. By building their knowledge of these important pollinators they are helping build a sustainable future for the bees and for all.
