Rooftop Hives Are Buzzing in Boston

4 of 6
The Taj's director of engineering, Maureen Albright, was on a mission to save the honeybees. And so, there are 12 apiaries on the third and 17th floors of the hotel. The hotel is also located across the street from Boston's Public Garden, so the bees don't have far to travel to pollinate flowers and plants. Chef Gurminder Gidda uses the harvested honey at The Café at Taj Boston, including in sips like the honey-infused Champagne cocktail and bourbon-honey cocktail. And in the kitchen, Chef incorporates the honey into a pork belly appetizer, cheesecake, and honey butter.
