The honey, called simply Piccadilly London Honey, varies from year to year, depending on the flora available to the bees, but is usually a lovely pale, toffee colour with a soft consistency. The very first crop tasted of the Oxfordshire countryside, where the bees had been staying before they were transported to London.
More recent harvests, gathered every autumn, hint at the bees' journeys through London’s nearby parks and gardens, including Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Green Park. The result is a honey of depth and freshness, with subtle traces of chestnut, lime and garden flowers.
This year you have the chance of getting your hands on the very first five jars of our London honey - one from each of our London hives. Each year we auction off these in-demand, rare jars of honey and this year we are hosting a fundraiser - with the highest donation taking home the first of our 2019 harvested honey.
