Named after the native British honey bee, Black Bee Honey supports British bees and farmers by providing premium honey sourced from the best British Bee farms.
Co-founders Chris Barnes and Paul Webb work collaboratively with like-minded beekeepers, ensuring the best welfare and quality possible, to produce single origin honey in three distinctive varieties – all jarred in local batches straight from the hive: London Honey (harvested from individual boroughs of the capital); Summer Honey ( created by bees from a wonderful mix of wildflowers); and British Heather Honey (made by bees in Exmoor National Park from British Ling Heather).
Abiding by the mantra “bees know best”, Black Bee Honey is left unprocessed, neither heated nor blended, to ensure that each jar contains optimum flavour and nutritional benefits. Harvested straight from the honeycomb, the honeys carry traces of the seasons, reflecting the weather and flora of the honey bees’ natural habitat. For this reason, each jar is unique in flavour, hue and consistency, tasting the bees’ adventures in every batch.

Believing that nature knows best, the team leave the honey completely unprocessed, 100% natural, letting the individual flavours from these different areas of the UK shine through.
