The 12th annual International Honey Tasting Competition was once again held along with our Second Annual Asheville Honey Fest at The Salvage Station. The Grand Prize for the World’s Best Tasting Honey was announced on June 4th!
Congratulations to José Meseguer for being voted Grand Prize Winner at this year’s competition. It’s an impressive achievement to be recognized as the producer of the “World’s Best Tasting Honey” throughout the year until 2024 when a new champion will be announced.
Entries are already being submitted for next year’s contest. Cash awards are funded by the HoneyFest entry fee and sale of unopened honey. The 12th annual International Black Jar Grand Prize rose to $6,000 in 2023!
The Black Jar Event easily filled its larger venue, and we are pleased to observe its continued growth. Look forward to another year of world competition, excitement, and family entertainment in 2024. Proceeds fund the Center for Honeybee Research as we continue working on behalf of honeybee and pollinator survival.
