Bermondsey Street Bees ‘Union Collection’ Exmoor Wildflower Raw Honey 330g

(1 customer review)

£12.00

A wilderness honey with blossom nectars and caramels supported by deeper notes of chestnut and heather.

DESCRIPTION

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.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

A rich single-source honey from Exmoor National Park . The hives are situated in the Minehead area, foraging in flowering trees ( as honeybee have evolved to do over millions of years. ) Native wildflowers, moorland and cliff plants bring additional interest to the honey, as do the unassuming seashore species that bees seek out for the mineral-rich nectar. 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.

Guild of Fine Foods Judges Comments:

"Stunning amber nectar that positively glows with nature, health, and vitality! The natural aromas are warm, aromatic, deep, and promising, gently beginning to reveal the exciting layers of flavour held within the honey. Warm, floral, light citrus, aromatic herb, sweet licorice, lively mineral notes blend harmoniously, smooth and velvety in texture, leaving the mouth singing and the tongue-tingling with pleasure. Softly sweet, lightly citrus, with a warm spicy note and herbal balance. The happy life of the bees is clearly reflected in the flavour notes in this extraordinary feat of nature. Intricate and beautiful, warming, comforting and soothing, this honey is a gift for humankind!
"

"A very attractive golden caramel honey with a brown sugar, woody and honeysuckle flower aroma. The fascinating flavour profile begins with a burst of orange then follows through with a huge bouquet of flowers like stocks, wisteria , phlox and honeysuckle that you would associate with a summer's evening. These heady sweeter floral notes are balanced and cut with a touch of citrus and acidIty which stops this honey from becoming too cloying . A really characterful honey with plenty of interest."

"A fluid golden amber honey. Intense honeysuckle-like perfume on the nose draws you in to the palate, which takes you on a long journey through complex floral and herbal layers. These are interwoven with uplifting bright citrus notes and even, perhaps, faint aniseed/fennel. Exceptionally delicious."
