Olly Smith, Our Taster-in-Chief

Honeycombers has teamed up with renowned independent expert taster, Olly Smith, to ensure that we select only the best raw, artisan honeys for the Honeycombers range.

Many will be familiar with Olly’s career as an award-winning broadcaster, wine expert and drinks columnist for the Mail on Sunday, however what many people won’t know is that Olly kept bees for nearly 11 years and is a huge honey fan! He is also a patron of the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, supporting our wild pollinators. 

We’ve known Olly for ages, so when we needed a ‘tongue for hire’, Olly was the obvious choice.

Olly has tasted all the honeys (and meads!) that Honeycombers has to offer and has created individual tasting notes to guide you through the cornucopia of different aromas, tastes and textures.

Lastly, don’t forget to look out for Olly’s Honey of the Month where he explores one of our new discoveries in more detail.

Thank you Olly, and ‘All hail the Taster-in-Chief’!
