They talk about the honeybee and the importance of biodiversity initiatives as well as tasting some honeys. They explain the process in the meadery. All their bottling is done by hand. Then in their lovely tasting room, they run a tutored tasting of the meads and talk about food pairing in some of the local Kinsale restaurants and Kokos chocolatier as well as mead cocktails which you can find in some Kinsale bars.
