Bermondsey Street Bees ‘Metro Collection’ Royal Albert Dock London Raw Honey 330g

£14.00

A silky textured London honey with herbaceous glints meeting brambly notes of fruitcake and peach tea.

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.)
