Custom House 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.

Sustainable London Beekeeping & Honey

Bermondsey Street Bees was founded in 2007, a time when London’s open spaces, rooftops and private gardens still offered honeybees a safe haven. Even then, with sustainability top of their agenda, founders Dale & Sarah began establishing significant urban planting projects to protect and build biodiversity around their apiary sites.

Since then though, the fashionable trend for urban beekeeping has swamped London and many other cities with more and more hives. The combination of soaring honeybee populations and ever-shrinking green space raises major ecological concerns, with scientists spotlighting London beekeeping (and honey production) as having become problematic. The city’s hive density is now three times higher than anywhere in Europe, and in this challenged environment, food-seeking honeybees increasingly compete not only with each other, but also with already-endangered wild bee species (bumblebees and solitaries.)

In the face of a steady increase in honeybee populations and parallel declines of wild pollinators, Bermondsey Street Bees have reduced their urban hive numbers significantly over the past few years. They have also moved apiaries away from urban hotspots into uncrowded, naturally rewilded land in London’s far Docklands, under an exclusive licence with The Royal Docks.

In these naturally rewilded brownfield sites, a rich, vibrant and ever-evolving flora and fauna underpin a strong ecosystem. Here, with plentiful resources, Bermondsey Street Bees’ hives can live in balance with their wild cousins. Bermondsey Street Bees always prioritise their bees’ welfare over honey production, but it’s thrilling to see national award-winning recognition for the glorious, and highly differentiated sustainable London honeys that their four Docklands sites are now producing.

Provenance Edition #007 Bermondsey Street Bees Custom House Honey (2021)

Edition Size: 500 Jars

First Release: Numbered Jars 1 to 100 - Released 17th Feb 2023.


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.

Guild of Fine Foods Judges Comments:

"A very pretty, clear, runny honey with an attractive light caramel colour. We loved the juicy mouth feel with lots of ripe fruit, floral and citrus notes. The flavour is long and well balanced and we enjoyed the light caramel finish."

"Strong aroma of barley sugar that translates to the palate. Beautiful golden colour and good depth of flavour, which lingers in the mouth. Not overly sweet."

Two Star Great Taste Awards Winner: 2019, 2020

Guild of Fine Foods Judges Comments:

"Light golden honey with a gentle floral aroma. Wonderfully smooth mouthfeel, and the flavour is complex and varied: floral notes start the journey then the toffee fudgy notes join in to give a well rounded product with good complexity and length."

"Light, gently cloudy, golden looking honey with a loose syrupy consistency. It's a fresh smelling honey with floral notes. On the palate there are floral hints aplenty with elderflower coming through but the flavour develops to become more complex with fudgey flavours coming through too. It's fresh yet warming and lingers on the palate with fabulous flavour nuances, great length and a certain amount of charm. This is a beautiful product"
