3 STAR AWARD WINNING HONEY GREAT TASTE AWARDS 2020, REGIONAL GOLDEN FORK WINNER (LONDON & SOUTH EAST) & GREAT BRITISH FOOD AWARDS 2020 HIGHLY COMMENDED

DESCRIPTION

Beyond the Thames barrier, East London’s riverside offers some surprising spaces where bees can prosper. The Royal Albert Dock bees collect pollen and nectar principally from brownfield areas that were cleaned and returned to nature more than 20 years ago. Apparently bleak, this post-industrial landscape actually offers a wealth of the wild forage that honeybees will always seek in preference to cultivated garden flowers. Pioneer species such as Black Alder, Willow, Robinia, Bramble, Dandelion, Elder and Tree of Heaven are amongst the many forage sources which produce this rich varietal.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Mid- deep amber (depending on batch)
Nose: Intense, fruity
Viscosity: Mid.
Flavour Notes: Warm and brambly with fruitcake, vine fruit and peach tea notes.
Pairing ideas: Porridge, toast (try with seeded and rye breads). Heavenly with artisan cheddars, young blues and dry goats cheese. Walnuts and hazelnuts: fresh or candied in the honey. Dressings, BBQ sauces and glazes.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

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.

Awarded ‘Best Honey in Middlesex’* at the 2019 National Honey Show.

(* traditional name for the majority of the Greater London Area which fell within the county of Middlesex.)

Three Star Great Taste Awards Winner: 2020

Guild of Fine Foods Judges Comments:

"Very complex nose and a luscious butterscotch hit right at the start of the palate followed by a clean, round, mouth-filling sensation that had us all eulogizing in the most florally descriptive terms. We were amazed at the creamy notes coating the mouth and we could detect the hints of bramble on the finish. We'll never think of the brambles in our hedges in the same light."

"Wow! This is a stunning honey. Full of all the promised butterscotch qualities which are deep, dark and creamy. In fact the mouthfeel is creamy too - coating the mouth so beautifully like velvet. We are so enjoyed judging this, the finish goes on for ever - giving us a long, warm and joyous time of it! The hints of the bramble and blackberry also made an appearance on the finish - which was clean and utterly sublime. This is how honey should always."

"Caramelly and enticing! An earthy hedgerow aroma. Deliciously smooth and creamy on the palate. That butterscotch and bramble flavour definitely comes through as well as mineralness. Initial strength in flavour melts away leaving a lingering and long lasting freshness that changes as time goes on. A light but complex honey. Lovely!"

Great British Food Awards 2020 - Highly Commended

Judged by Bryn Williams:

"This is a fantastic and solid honey and it would work well across various uses. I can imagine enjoying this in tea, with cake, or in cooking. A good all-rounder although with slightly less depth than the other winners"
