Wainwrights have been working with beekeepers from Zambia since 1983. In that time not much has changed with how this honey is collected. Bark hives are still hung from trees, keeping them safe from the local wildlife. They are occupied by wild swarms which fill the combs with rich aromatic honey completely unique to any honey that is collected in the UK. The only change these hives have been through is now there are more hives and bees to populate them thanks to the next generation taking up the mantle of keeping bees. Thus ensuring the continued growth and vitality of the forest.

We used this honey to brew a Zambian Honey Mead in collaboration with Wainwrights Honey and Bees For Development Charity.
