Sustainability & Community
March 2023 marked a significant achievement for our company as we proudly received the B-Corp Certification. This milestone is a testament to our commitment to making a positive impact. While some might see this as a finish line, for us, it's just the beginning of an even more purposeful journey ahead.
We like to think of ourselves as champions of sustainable solutions for our planet, ensuring the well-being of our cherished bees. Moreover, it is imperative to us that we educate our stakeholders about the crucial role these bee-loved creatures play in our ecosystem, advocating for their existence and protecting of the world's favourite insect. With each sip of Beeble, you can join us in supporting this vital cause.
Zero waste to great taste
Our Honey Whisky was initially created as a way to use up leftover honey, stuck to the frames in our hives. We soaked them in whisky, and this is how our first honey batch of Beeble was born. Since then, we've hardly looked back, adding Honey Vodka and Honey Rum with a brand new Honey Tequila on the way.
Local, ethical and sustainably sourced
We hold a deep commitment to ethical beekeeping. Our honey-harvesting practices are thoughtfully managed with the bees well-being the first priority. We will only take honey from our hives when we can ensure they have a surplus supply.
Different seasons call for different measures. In winter we take every measure to insulate their hives, shielding them from the cold and supporting their resilience. Come Spring and Summer, we try cultivate an abundant garden of bee-friendly flowers, providing sustenance and care.
Bees for Development is a charity that holds a special place in our hearts. Their mission is to foster sustainable beekeeping in developing countries by sharing vital beekeeping skills, creating a reliable source of lifelong income. This initiative not only fights poverty but also contributes to preserving biodiversity. We wholeheartedly support their cause, as we're committed to doing our part for the planet. Together, we can make a meaningful difference.
In recent years, our partnership with Idler has been dedicated to educating people about the significance of bees and nurturing a community of beekeepers. Through our beekeeping courses to date, we've proudly trained over 500 new enthusiasts.
As of September 2023, we're taking things up a notch by constructing our very own beekeeping school at our hives' home in Wiltshire. This exciting development will empower us to offer an array of courses year-round, furthering our mission to raise awareness and knowledge about the vital role bees play in our ecosystem.
We expect our school to become a hive of knowledge, propelling our mission to spread awareness about the vital role bees play in our ecosystem and educating more people than ever before. The goal is to create a buzz of enthusiasm and learning will echo far beyond our apiary, leaving a lasting impact on the world of beekeeping and environmental stewardship.
