The story of Bermondsey Street Bees began when Dale Gibson realised that the roof of their Victorian sugar warehouse overlooking The Shard would be a perfect place to keep bees in the heart of London. Surrounded by parks and lush rooftop gardens, Bermondsey Street provides a surprisingly green environment. After completing beekeeper training, he installed his first hives in 2007, beginning a fascinating journey into what has become a passion for bee welfare and raw honey production.
From the beginning, Bermondsey Street Honey has been highly sought after, and its uniquely complex multi-floral taste has won many awards. Being judged ‘Best Honey in London’ at the 2011 National Honey Show was a great endorsement of the care they put into our bees and their artisan honey.
