About British Honey Company


Launched in 2014, BHC has an extensive collection of award-winning spirits brands crafted at its onsite distillery in Buckinghamshire. Its impressive range began with Keepr's British Honey Spirits infused with 100% pure honey from its own fully traceable apiaries and includes gin, rum, bourbon, vodka and a ready to drink selection of hard seltzers and a low alcohol gin and tonic.

In 2020 it expanded further after acquiring the brands of the London Distillery Company (Dodd's Organic Gin, Rye and Single Malt Whiskeys), securing an exciting partnership agreement with English Heritage to produce its gins and launching an affordable luxury spirits range, 1606. In the same year, BHC also developed its first alcohol sanitiser product in the UK in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.

In February 2021, BHC completed the acquisition of Union Distillers Limited, based in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, Union Distillers was founded in 2012. Over the past eight years it has grown to become an independent producer and distributor of proprietary and "own-label" spirits. It has well-invested infrastructure which includes its own stills, bonded warehouse and it is proposing to install a canning line. Union has a strong manufacturing capability, established brands and an extensive and growing retail and wholesale customer base. Products include its premium, proprietary "Two Birds" range of spirits comprising 11 gins, seven vodkas, a spiced rum, an absinthe and a 29% ABV espresso vodka liqueur. In addition, Union distils spirits on behalf of a range of B2B customers including some major German supermarkets with a UK presence. Like BHC, Union is also SALSA accredited.

Future development plans will see BHC open a second distillery on Oxfordshire's Tusmore Estate, expected late 2021, where it will produce a Tusmore Single Estate Triple Distilled Premium English Whiskey to add to its Single Malt Tusmore Whiskey, of which investment casks are currently available to purchase.
