Bermondsey Street Metro - Royal Albert Dock Honey 330g
The Bermondsey Street Metro label brings you their carefully curated selection of raw English honeys from urban beekeepers who share the same philosophy of careful beekeeping and artisanal production.
Beyond the Thames barrier, East London’s riverside offers some surprising spaces where bees can prosper. The Royal Albert Dock bees collect pollen and nectar principally from brownfield areas that were cleaned and returned to nature more than 20 years ago. Apparently bleak, this post-industrial landscape actually offers a wealth of the wild forage that honeybees will always seek in preference to cultivated garden flowers. Pioneer species such as Black Alder, Willow, Robinia, Bramble, Dandelion, Elder and Tree of Heaven are amongst the many forage sources which produce this rich varietal.
Tasting Notes: Warm and brambly with fruitcake, vine fruit and peach tea notes
