American Honey Tasting Society
The American Honey Tasting Society’s Project Flavor and Floral Mapping is an ongoing study aimed at creating a database of American honeys. This database will connect each honey’s flavor profile (flavor, color, taste and aroma) to its respective terroir (region, climate and floral source). Our experienced panel of tasters will be writing the tasting notes for each honey sample.
All information gathered from this study will be used to help us better understand honeybees’ behavior, their floral preferences and the resulting flavor profiles of the honeys produced within each specific locations in the US. We hope to identify rare and unique honey while at the same time bringing attention to endangered honey plants and their honeys.
We understand this is a huge undertaking that will go on for years…even generations. Every United States beekeeper is an essential part of this project. We hope you will join us by providing us samples of your honey with a completed Honey Submission Form below. If you keep honeybees in the United States and can provide us with at least 4 ounces of honey, we invite you to submit a sample and help us build our database. Our tasting notes will be available to you to use as a marketing tool to promote and sell your honey. You will be welcomed to use The American Honey Tasting Society badge to verify your tasting note for the specific honey harvest.
