Bee’s Knees Week – Distillery Tour & Honey Tasting/Lesson – Tickets Required
September 27, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$45
with America’s Most Awarded Gin and the makers of 2022 World’s Best Tasting Honey
Join us on for an intimate behind-the-scenes guided tour and tasting at our distillery – the only place in the world where Barr Hill Gin, Tom Cat Gin, and Barr Hill Vodka are distilled. Learn about distillation up-close and witness first-hand how our distillers work with raw honey to craft our spirits. You’re invited to explore the whole building, meet the stills, smell the oak in the barrel room, tour the bottling operation and our experimental R&D lab.
Afterwards, you’ll sit down with some very special friends.
Gen and Rick Drutchas, the beekeepers from nearby Bee Haven Honey Farm for a honey lesson. They are the 2022 Grand Prize Winners of the Center For Honeybee Research’s International Black Jar Contest as the World’s Best Tasting Honey. You’ll get a chance to (safely) see live bees in an observational hive and learn about the intricacies of beekeeping, honeymaking and taste raw honey straight off the comb!
And, of course, what’s a Barr Hill tour without a cocktail to unwind with? Sip and relax while enjoying time for Q&A with your new friends at the end. For more information on Bee Haven Honey Farm check out this article HERE
