Dermot AsIs Sha’Non is the horticulturalist and beekeeper tending to the three hives of bees (around 30,000 little individuals) that supply the honey for Hotel Hotel. The hives are located in the wetlands at the back of Kingston, across the lake from Hotel Hotel. The bees foraging for natives, blossoms and blackberry flowers are making a paddock honey that is extracted using the centrifugal approach (without heat) to retain the beautiful wild flavour and health benefits of raw honey. Honey from the three hives is bottled separately to allow the individual personality of the hive to be preserved.
