Intro to Hitchin Lavendar Honey Gin –
Hitchin Lavendar Honey Gin is a limited edition gin. The honey used in this small batch was harvested from their own hives which were in residence on the lavender fields in Hitchin last Summer. They ran monthly beekeeping experience sessions over the Spring and Summer teaching lovely folk all about the wonders of honeybees and the delicious honey they produce.
Each bottle is hand sealed with lavender wax setting it apart from the original Hitchin Honey Gin.
THE PRODUCER AS WRITTEN BY ANDRE – THE HONEYBEE MAN
I started beekeeping as a teenager at boarding school and was fascinated by the British honeybee and its habits. After relocating to Hertfordshire from London in 2004 my family and I set about creating our very own ‘Good Life’ – from vegetable patches, to sheep, pigs and hens, then finally honeybees and our very own apiary.
Since 2005 I have managed and tended to my own honeybees, selling delicious honey to local outlets and making a name for myself collecting swarms and relocating colonies. I have been known to be found at the top of a cherry picker, delicately cajoling bees from tops of chimneys, much to the delight of locals watching!
After years of creating our own homemade mead, cider and kombucha using our own raw honey; In the Summer of 2019 while tending hives at the Hitchin Lavender fields we struck upon the idea of creating our very own Hitchin Honey Gin. We met with a distiller and created our own unique blend of botanicals which matched perfectly with the notes of our own honey to create a delicious tipple which we’re very happy to now share with you!
All the honey used in Hitchin Honey Gin is sourced from our own hives which are located within a 10 mile radius of Hitchin. The more cocktails you enjoy, the more hives we’ll build and the healthier our local population of honeybees will become. A truly sustainable way to ensure the future of our own British Honeybee (and who doesn’t love cocktails?) A percentage of our profits will also be used to fund local biodiversity projects introducing the community to the wonders of honeybees and beekeeping. Follow us on our journey!
