“The honey-rye whiskey takes you to an unexpected place, from (its) peppery start – spiraling around the tip of your tongue – to the languid motion, as it slips pensively down the throat (and) into the gullet.”Forbes
This is not the first time the sweet taste of honey prompted a woman to build a hive of happiness. When Claire Marin was introduced to beekeeping in 2003, it became the catalyst for a new life, the creation of a start-up company and a meaningful way to help influence her local community in the Catskill region of New York state. But what I really wanted to know was why a top advertising executive would leave her job for a beekeeping hobby?
Claire is the founder and CEO of Catskill Provisions, which produces Honey Rye Whiskey and a host of other artisanal products like pancake and waffle mix, aged honey apple cider vinegar, and chocolate honey truffles. Her love of bees and honey are the core of her business.
