The Ultimate Christmas Desserts

Now Halloween is over, Christmas is starting to creep up on us and with only a few more weeks to go, the bees at Team Beeble are starting to get pretty excited!!

 

Already we have exhibited at a few early Christmas fairs this month such as the ‘Christmas Cocktail Fair’ in aid of ‘Save the Children’ which took place at the Old Chelsea Town Hall. In addition we were also at the Rugby Portobello Christmas Market in aid of the Rugby Portobello Trust – a charity which supports the lives of young people and their families living in North Kensington.

However, our biggest market of the year, which started at the end of last week is Blenheim Palace Christmas Market! We are so excited to be involved with this event first time ever as a company and we will be there for the full 4-week duration of it. With a huge selection of beautifully decorated chalets selling hundreds of Christmas goodies, not to mention the ice-skating rink and extraordinary ‘light trail’ we are buzzing to be there and cannot wait for it to begin!

Beeble is selling our award-winning Honey Whisky as well as our newest addition to the Beeble drink collection, Beeble Honey Vodka. In addition, we are also selling our range of natural cosmetic products as well as our limited edition Christmas Cocktail Boxes and Beeble Gift Boxes!

 

Just an hour outside of London and a ten-minute bus ride from Oxford, it is the perfect family day out, so if your around, come and say hi!

 

As Christmas is getting closer, we also wanted to share with you a few of our favourite Beeble Christmas dessert recipes which all contain our delicious Beeble Honey Whisky!
