Standing elegantly along Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour is Comvita’s world-class, experiential space – the Wellness Lab. This revolutionary retail space seamlessly integrates nature and science to expand your perceptions of honey, Mānuka and our friends, the bees.
There, you will find the signature tasting journey inside the Wellness Lab’s boutique 180° theatre, brought to life in close collaboration with leading gastrophysicist and sensory science expert, Professor Charles Spence – whose previous work includes collaborations with Heston Blumenthal (of The Fat Duck fame). The journey will take you through a tasting flight of honeys, as you’re guided by an expert host through the intricate details of the natural honey-making process, while experiencing the natural landscape of New Zealand from a ‘bee’s eye view’.
Imagine the most wondrous elements of a wine tasting and a planetarium merging to tell a truly unique story that engages all five senses. For a limited time only, you’ll even get to sample Comvita’s Special Reserve UMF™ 25+ Mānuka Honey, one of the rarest honeys in the world. So come immerse yourself in the tasting experience at the Comvita Wellness Lab.
Each 45-minute session costs $20 per person, with 100% of proceeds going to For The Love of Bees and Saving the Wild. Tasting sessions are offered seven days a week at 12.30pm, and can seat up to eight at a time.
