The Yankee Store on at the Kinsale Road Retail Centre Cork had a launch of Root candles from the USA. Kim Flottum was in attendance to sign his book, he is also a beekeeper, editor of Bee Culture Beekeeping Magazine and Lecturer. Kim is a regular attender at Stoneleigh in the UK.
Members of Cork County Beekeepers were invited to attend the launch and to bring a few jars of honey to compare to the honey from across the Atlantic. There was Jazz in the background , wine and finger food and honey tasting available.
The various US honeys were produced along with some local Cork honey which in our opinion won hands down (obviously).
