Honey Spirits Summit Agenda


Spend time with distillers from across the country and share ideas and your beers. Past events have spurred some amazing collaborations between attendees.

Technical Sessions

The National Honey Board has conducted significant, independent research on how honey impacts spirits and how to distill from honey. This research will be presented, complete with sensory panel analysis and tastings.

Honey Tastings

Did you know there are more than 3,000 varietals of honey, each with a unique flavor, aroma and color? Although we won’t taste all 3,000, we’ll sample honeys from around the world.

Distillery Tours

We’ll tour local distilleries throughout the summit. We’ll be touring their distillery as well as sampling spirits made with honey specifically for the event!

Honey Spirits Tastings

We’ve sourced and purchased some of the best honey spirits in the world. We’ll conduct multiple tastings based on varietal and types of spirit.

Apiary Visit

The sound of 60,000+ bees working is something you’ll never forget. Our attendees suit up and visit an apiary, where they are given an up-close and personal peek inside an active hive.
