This Christ­mas, British honey com­pany Black Bee Honey un­veils the world’s first Christ­mas honey, the very first spe­cially ded­i­cated to the hol­i­day.

The per­fect gift for the fes­tive sea­son, this ex­clu­sive honey is jarred straight from hives lo­cated in the New For­est with bees who have fed on ivy plants. Light in colour but strong in taste, the Fes­tive Honey com­bines flo­ral, earthy tones with a sweet, ripe fin­ish for a truly dis­tinc­tive flavour.

Ivy has been re­garded as a pow­er­ful heal­ing herb for cen­turies. It is par­tic­u­larly well known for its abil­ity to aid with a per­sis­tent cough due to its mu­colytic prop­er­ties - es­pe­cially per­ti­nent in the cold win­ter months!

Co-founders Chris Barnes and Paul Webb work col­lab­o­ra­tively with like-minded British 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. The Black Bee is the orig­i­nal, na­tive British honey bee, which af­ter nearly dy­ing out, is slowly mak­ing a come­back. The Black

Bee Fes­tive Honey is a lim­ited edi­tion avail­able to buy direct from black­bee­honey.co for £7.95.
