Bermondsey Street Bees is famous for supplying top chefs with raw English honeys, with a client list including Tom Kerridge, Jose Pizarro and other luminaries. Not surprisingly, they’ve also won multiple awards. Three-times winner of Best London Honey, they hold numerous Great Taste stars and two Golden Forks (the food equivalent of an Oscar) as well as winning at the 2020 Great British Food Awards. In 2016, Bermondsey Street Bees were named the UK’s Small Artisan Producer of the Year, the ultimate accolade. Good honey, like fine wine, is a perfect reflection of its place of origin. Unlike the blended honeys sold in supermarkets, real honey has an infinite variety of colours, textures and flavours, which Bermondsey Street Bees celebrate. A small, sustainability-led, family business, they prioritise their bees’ welfare, site their urban and country hives carefully and treat their products with respect. In contrast to the highly processed commercial honeys, artisan producers like Bermondsey Street Bees use only traditional methods, simply spinning the honey from the comb and minimally filtering without heat. The result is raw honey, packed with pollens and other micronutrients and bursting with flavours. And like fine wine, local honeys can differ widely from year to year, reflecting the weather and the bees’ choices of local flowers.
