Even though Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is dealing with their car manufacturing being suspended, one aspect of the company’s production line is still hard at work. The company’s bee apiary has finished their third full season of production and they’re looking at exceeding their 2020 volume targets for the prestigious Rolls-Royce honey. Yes, Rolls-Royce has their own honey, which is produced at Goodwood, West Sussex, the automaker’s home. Their six beehives have familiar names: ‘Phantom’, ‘Wraith’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Dawn’, ‘Cullinan’ and ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’. After the honey is processed out of each of these beehives by local specialists, it is then served to guests of Rolls-Royce. This honey that Rolls-Royce produces may just be the most exclusive honey out there!
“The Apiary further underlines our commitment to the environment, which informs everything we do at Goodwood,” says Richard Carter, Director of Global Communications at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “Our sustainable buildings, thermal ponds, rainwater management systems and wildfowl refuge have already made the Home of Rolls-Royce at Goodwood one of the UK’s most eco-friendly manufacturing facilities. Through this project, which taps into the biodiversity of our site, including our huge living roof, we’re making an important contribution to conserving Britain’s vital bee population.”
