The company donates 10% of all profits to Bees for Development, a charity that helps individuals in under-developed regions of the world become more self-sufficient through beekeeping. Camilla, Queen Consort, is the first President of the charity.
The Nest is also dedicated to a more sustainable future, located within the eco-conscious Treehouse Hotel London. Together with Beesou, they are raising awareness of the importance of bees, offering guests the first honey-kissed B-Corp aperitif.
The Beesou x The Nest at Treehouse Hotel London special cocktail menu will be available throughout May 2023, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to taste the delicious drinks while supporting a great cause!
Beesou is not your average drinks brand. Its promise is to create a buzz with exciting, all-natural, and honey-based drinks that provide consumers with a new perspective and allow them to see the world through the eyes of a bee.
Mark Wakefield, one of the co-founders, was frustrated with the lack of clarity surrounding the ingredients used in drinks and the fact that they are not required to list them, unlike food labels. This led to the discovery that many brands use E numbers to color their drinks. In response, the co-founders wanted to create an aperitif-style drink that is fully transparent about its ingredients, and thus, Beesou was born.
The co-founders of Beesou believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise on knowing what you’re putting into your body when enjoying a drink. They are environmentally conscious and wanted to create a drink from honey that could help raise awareness about saving the bees, support ethical beekeeping, and raise money for bee charities. Their mission was to create an all-natural aperitif using ethically sourced honey with a core mission to save the bees.
To develop the unique blend of this honey-based drink, the founders worked with a multi-award-winning wineologist and a leading beverage specialist with experience in fruit wines. After hundreds of trials and tastings over a two-year period, Beesou was born and developed into a uniquely complex, delicate, and smooth bitter honey aperitif.
Beesou is not only a delicious drink, but it is also a category definer, as Beehave Beverages is a confirmed B Corporation. Ten percent of profits from Beesou go to the Bees For Development charity, making it an ethical choice that contributes to a more sustainable future. By choosing Beesou, you can enjoy a tasty aperitif while also supporting a great cause.
The Nest is an exceptional rooftop bar situated on the 16th level of the Treehouse London hotel, providing astonishing 360-degree vistas of the city’s skyline. Upon entering the dimly lit wood-panelled entrance, visitors will be greeted by unprecedented views of the cityscape, alongside an elegant and vivacious bar that serves imaginative drinks and playful, market-inspired nibbles.
The Nest is a photogenic bar that captures the hotel’s whimsical, rustic, and nostalgic design, featuring lush greenery as a central element, with a living wall in the outdoor space and integrated throughout the indoor area using natural materials, such as striking raffia light fixtures and repurposed wood details.
In-house DJs will spin tunes from their treehouse “fort” indoors, and an open-air terrace encircles the entire bar, furnished with chaise lounges and a tandem swing set. The Nest operates from noon to 1 am every day, with guest DJs entertaining guests from Tuesday to Saturday, commencing from 8 pm until late.
