Bermondsey Street Bees It’s All About The Bees (Boxed Set)

£60.00

Perfect for any Honeybee lover, combining award-winning honeys with beautiful lifestyle products.

DESCRIPTION

A brilliant present for any honeybee lover. Two characterful, award-winning honeys to compare town and country flavours, a hand- decorated bone-china Honeybee mug and the charming Fair-trade cotton Honeybee tea-towel.

Custom House London Honey

Off the beaten track, some lesser-known corners of East London present exceptionally productive spaces for bees to thrive. The Custom House hives collect pollen and nectar from re-wilded former industrial land as well as private and public gardens, long-established tree and bush lines and the margins of Hackney Marshes. Marsh plants such as Water Mint are especially loved by the bees and lend bright herbaceous notes to this rich honey.

Exmoor Wildflower Honey

Exmoor’s spectacular National Park is one of the few wilderness areas left in Britain. Here the honeybees feed from the wild forage that they vastly prefer to cultivated flowers or crops. Notes of Wild Cherry and Sweet Chestnut form counterpoint flavours in this rich honey which has both blossom sweetness and gentle savour, with proximity to the seashore and its specialist flora adding a just -discernible salinity to the finish and creating a perfect whole.

Honeybee Bone China Mug

A bone china mug featuring the signature Honeybee design commissioned by Bermondsey Street Bees from the artist Katie Christianson. A modern take on a traditional scientific drawing, it makes a strong graphic statement. Hand decorated in Scotland; black on white. Dishwasher-safe, bone china mugs combine their luxurious feel and translucent appearance with great strength and durability They also keep hot drinks hotter far longer than normal ceramic mugs.

Honeybee Teatowel

A white tea towel in quality cotton/linen union. 18.5cm x 30cm. Printed in England with the Honeybee illustration commissioned by Bermondsey Street Bees from the artist Katie Christianson as a modern take on a traditional scientific specimen drawing. Washing-machine safe.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Custom House London Honey

A rich single-source honey from East London’s Docklands area where significant re-wilding underpins the wide variety of pollen and nectar sources that honeybees need for optimal health and the production of characterful honey. Only their surplus honey is ever harvested, leaving the colony with plentiful winter stores. The honey is extracted using a simple centrifuge. Never blended or heated above the natural hive temperature, it is minimally filtered in a traditional process that removes excess wax whilst preserving all of the honey’s natural flavours, aromatics and micro-nutrients including the pollens.

Exmoor Wildflower Honey

Exmoor’s spectacular National Park is one of the few wilderness areas left in Britain. Here the honeybees feed from the wild forage that they vastly prefer to cultivated flowers or crops. Notes of Wild Cherry and Sweet Chestnut form counterpoint flavours in this rich honey which has both blossom sweetness and gentle savour, with proximity to the seashore and its specialist flora adding a just -discernible salinity to the finish and creating a perfect whole.

Custom House Honey Two Star Great Taste Awards Winner: 2019

Guild of Fine Foods comment "A gloriously rich and floral aroma. An extraordinary array of flavours on the palate ranging from the richly nutty to a bouquet of summer meadow. Wonderful nuances with great persistence. Intriguing and delightful… endless fascination and a pleasingly uncloying finish”
