Spicy honey from Matt Aldridge, Yattendon

Spicy honey from Matt Aldridge, Yattendon

from 5.75

Matt used to work in the wine industry which probably explains his approach to choosing sites for his apiaries: he draws a circle on the map to capture the 3-mile radius a colony will usually forage within and looks for diversity to help make the honey more interesting.

This honey comes from hives on the Yattendon Estate, over 7,000 acres of mixed arable and woodland in West Berkshire. This was taken from the hives in September, the first time he's have taken honey from hives so late in the beekeeping season. Forage for the bees is varied with arable farmland, wild flowers grow between the rows of young Christmas trees, and woodland which makes up about 25% of the estate is rich in flowering trees such as Hazel, English Lime, Horse and Sweet chestnut This is a sweet honey with spicy notes and some fruit in there too.
