The Beekeper Experience
An Expert Beekeeper's Guide to Maltese Honey
Meet The Beekeper
There is no man more knowledgeable about bees on the Islands of Malta than Mario Sant! A fourth-generation beekeeper with over 100 hives, Mario has a lifetime of experience working with these incredibly fascinating insects. No matter how much time you spend with Mario, he will always have more to say about his favourite creatures that you will start to think he may have been a bee in a previous life!
The passion Mario has for his bees is infectious and the gratitude he has for their work in pollinating our environment and producing delicious honey is evident. As he says, he has never made a drop of honey in his life, he just 'stole' it from his bees!
