Fancy a taste of the sweet life? 

Get buzzed for our Honeyworks Taster Events as part of The Manchester Flower Festival! We'll be hosting a bee-keeping experience, situated up on our secret rooftop garden, followed by a tasting session with Decorrum & a cocktail masterclass at Floripa!

Meet our expert beekeeper Damson from Hive5, and begin your training, all in the floral setting of our newly refreshed rooftop garden! Check out our rooftop bees and take a peek at an internal glass hive where you'll spot the queen, along with her baby bees and all the worker bees. 

Then it's time to taste the fruits of their labour - we're talking honey! Decorrum is a multi award-winning Spiced Rum made with actual Printworks honey. You're invited for a tasting of this quintessentially British Rum using British Sugar Cane and only 7 locally sourced natural ingredients, including our honey! 

Once you've wet your appetite, you'll head down to our Brazilian Bar, Floripa, to mix-up some brilliant bee-themed cocktails! You'll be shown all the shaking tips & tricks to master the art of cocktail making with their mixologists, then you can get creative to make a Decorrum cocktail tailored just for you! 

Finish the evening out on Floripa’s terrace area, with a lovely view of our bee garden planters, and enjoy the sunset with your personalised bee bevs! 

All ticket sales will be raising money for Forever Manchester to help support the great work they do funding over a 1000 community projects across Greater Manchester each year.
