Board Change


Sir Hugo Swire, Chairman, to step down from the Board at the 2020 Annual General Meeting


The British Honey Company plc ("British Honey" or "the Company"), the producer of premium British honey, honey-infused spirits and alcohol sanitiser products, announces that Sir Hugo Swire, Non-Executive Chairman, will be stepping down from the Board of the Company at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting ("AGM") to be held on 25 September 2020.


Mr Philip Seers, a Non-Executive Director of the Company has been elected Chairman by the Board with effect from the closure of the AGM on 25 September.


Commenting, Michael Williams, CEO of British Honey, said:

"The Company would like to thank Sir Hugo for his contribution to the Company since he joined the board. He has been a key figure in the Company's transformation over the last 18 months, which has seen the Company grow from a private honey company to a listed spirits company with a general bonded warehouse, hand sanitiser business, an interest in an American distillery and the beginnings of a whisky distillery. We are sad to see Hugo go but understand his reasons and wish him well for the future."

Notes to Editors


About British Honey Company

Launched in 2014, BHC is famed for its award-winning fruit and honey infused spirits, marketed under the Keepr's brand. Many of the Keepr's spirits are infused with BHC's proprietary British Honey from its fully traceable apiaries. The impressive spirits range with seasonal lines spans eight gins, four vodkas, two rums, two bourbons and a whiskey which is scheduled for release later this year. All of BHC's spirits are distilled onsite in the company's specially customised Still under the watchful eye of international award-winning Master Distiller, Jamie Baggott. In March 2020 BHC diversified its product range by developing its first alcohol sanitiser product in the UK in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.  This was produced using BHC's excess alcohol supplies and under authorisations obtained from HMRC to use denatured alcohol for alcohol sanitiser use.
