Bermondsey Street Bees ‘Union Collection’ Cotswold Summer Flower Raw Honey 330g

£12.00

A sunny golden honey with bright florals, elderflower sparkle and a refreshing herbal/fruity finish.

DESCRIPTION

Enlightened Cotswold farmers are taking their land back to more traditional management and this honey is produced in areas rich with flowering native trees and mixed hedgerows. The fields are sown with wild flower strips and careful crop rotation nurtures both the soil and the wildlife, supporting an ever-increasing biodiversity. This honey is the bees’ own elegant fusion of wild forage (including bramble, elderflower, rosebay willowherb, white clover, lime, chestnut and cherry) and the crops including borage and field beans which they help to pollinate.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

The rolling countryside of the Cotswolds has traditionally yielded some of Britain’s best farmland. It is also an area where environmental consciousness is gaining new ground. Many farms are turning their backs on modern monocultural practice, returning to more traditional land management. This offers both honeybees and wild pollinators a rich mosaic of forage; from flowering trees and hedgerows to wildflower strips sown in the margins of fields and the crops which they help pollinate. Only the 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.

Two Star Great Taste Awards Winner: 2020

Guild of Fine Foods Judges Comments:

"An ever so slightly cloudy, pale golden honey, with beautiful late spring floral notes. This incredibly delicate honey is a true joy to taste. The initial sense of ripe fruit acidity is followed by aromatic floral notes, all carried by the clean yet creamy texture"

"Caramel, grassy and floral in aroma. Light silky on the palate. The flavours have lovely subtle length - caramel, then meadowy/ grassy notes and going into a zesty floral finish, lingering on the tongue for some time. A delicate and refreshing honey. "
