Christmas edition of the Helt honey, to be ordered online, and you can also find it at the wonderful food market Torvehallerne in Copenhagen. “Helt was founded in 2012 by Anthony Lee, a passionate beekeeper and honey lover. Anthony had moved to Denmark four years earlier, after meeting a Danish girl and dropping everything in England to head over the water to be with her. At the time of moving, there were no jobs for Anthony because he couldn’t speak Danish. So he sat around for a while thinking it over, and eventually decided that beekeeping might be for him. Helt is hand-crafted Danish honey infused with love for bees and nature. That’s what Helt is all about really. Working the precious honey in small batches is the traditional and cosy way to do things.”

Simply Chocolate is based in Copenhagen. “Up here it’s too cold to grow cocoa beans. But it´s hot enough to have a love affair with great chocolate. Copenhagen is a very old city with a highly vibrating pulse and plenty of room to nurture a new kind of chocolate. Since we began in 2011, a lot of people have shared our desire. Not just for what we do, but apparently also for how we do it. We appreciate that.

Simply Chocolate only uses the finest raw chocolate on the market and the best natural ingredients. We use the best of nuts, grains and berries. Like almonds, hazelnuts, and pecans. Spelt flakes and oatmeal. And, finally, cranberries, goji berries, coconut, bluberries, you name it. On top of that, we spice it up with liquorice, vanilla, cinnamon, chili, ginger and other wonders of nature.”

Paperboy, a wine bottle made out of compressed recycled paper. “Paperboy is about as green as it’s possible to make a wine bottle. It’s made out of a compressed recycled paper, printed with natural inks and the inside contains a recyclable sleeve like you find in a box of wine.  The bottles are rigid and strong – they’re even ice bucket safe for three hours – and take only 15% of the energy that regular glass bottles take to produce. They weigh only an ounce when empty so save a huge amount of energy on shipping. In Safeway now and available nationwide soon.” By Stranger & Stranger

“Smakshonning is a new range of honey with added flavor (hazelnut, raspberry and thyme) from Honningcentralen, Norway’s leading honey producer. The idea was to create a chemistry inspired bottle, to emphasize the applicability of honey within gastronomy. In addition to the three 350g main bottles, a gift set with a portion sized bottle of each flavour was created. The gift set bottles had a cork with the classic honey stick attached to it, resembling pipette found in chemistry labs.” Via The Dieline
