Bermondsey Street Honey has been amongst the key ingredients in Hannah Rhodes’ award-winning Hiver Beer since her launch in 2013. A true craft beer, Hiver has gone from strength to strength and in 2014 won Ocado’s “Next Top Supplier’ from a judging panel including Tom Kerridge , who tasted and singled out our honey for special praise during the event. hiverbeers.com
