Bee-licious Tastings: Honey, Mead, & More!

Thursday, June 6th at 6:30pm

FREE EVENT!
In celebration of Pollinator Month, join us for this special epicurean event to taste sips of mead, drips of honey, and all things bee-licious! Mead (A.K.A. Honey Wine) is most likely the oldest alcoholic beverage and is cited in many ancient texts throughout the world. It is even referenced as containing hidden wisdom and making the drinker a great poet or sage! Griffin Abee of Alchemy Herbal Wine will be sharing tastes of bee-guiling meads made with unique and intentional blends of herbs and spices. Alchemy utilizes local, seasonal, organic, wild-crafted, and natural honey, fruits, herbs, roots, and barks to create healthy nutritionally rich ancient beverages with a buzz!
Also joining is will be Amie Fields of Botantist & Barrel Cider!
In addition, sample local wildflower honey made from flowers growing within just a few miles of downtown Hendersonville and compare it to honeys from around the world. Local beekeepers will explain how bees collect nectar from flowers and turn it into honey, how beekeepers manage the nectar flow (to collect a monofloral honey such as sourwood), and how honey is harvested from the hive. Sweet and savory nibbles featuring honey and/or ingredients dependent on pollinators will also be included. Did you know 1 in every 3 bites you take is thanks to a pollinator? Think tomatoes, squash, berries, almonds, melons, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and even cheese (we’ll explain!).
This is a free event and tickets are not required but please let us know you are attending!
