The Art of Defining Honey
The AHTS is the leading resource for honey sensory education in the United States. Our mission is to raise the awareness of honey
as an artisan food through the highest standards of sensory education and guided tastings. Tasting and evaluating honey is a skill
earned through consciously tasting a wide variety of honeys to identifying their sensory qualities to identify aromas and flavors in a
honey sample. Learn the methods of sensory analysis used by sommeliers to taste and evaluate honey like an expert. The art of being
a honey tasting expert is as complex as being a wine or olive oil sommelier. We believe the future of honey lies in the identification of
its infinite flavor profiles and floral sources to evaluate it for consumer marketing and the culinary arts. Sensory analysis is a ground breaking concept in the traditional world of evaluating honey in the US.
