“How do you know it’s real honey if you don’t know the beekeeper?”

– Dale Gibson, Founder, Bermondsey Street Bees

‘Honey’ is amongst the regularly adulterated foodstuffs on earth; trans-shipped, blended, processed, and anonymised.  Understanding the difference, customers come to us for raw, single-source honeys which offer authenticity, provenance, and exceptional flavours.

Honeybees are essential to UK domestic food production. Many British fruits and vegetables and our meat and dairy industries all depend on bee pollination. Buying honey direct from local beekeepers supports them, supports Britain’s food economy and puts money back at grassroots to train the next generation of beekeepers.

Bermondsey Street Bees supplies raw honey and comb to a glittering array of London’s Five-Star hotels, Michelin-starred chefs and big-name bartenders. We also work with caterers, universities, small local restaurants and bars and specialist food producers, from grocers and bakers to distillers and brewers. People who understand the exceptional quality and flavours of our multi-award-winning honeys ….and the sustainable beekeeping practices that make them possible.

We are traditional, artisanal producers. Our honeys are never blended, micro-filtered or pasteurised. Just like fine olive oil and wine, their individuality and seasonality is something to be explored and celebrated. Every honey varietal has its own unique terroir, flavours and story to tell.
