25% Off - The Apiarist, Flight Path Gin
Bottled at 40% Abv.
When a pilot commissioned a gin to celebrate the anniversary of one of the UK’s oldest flying clubs, we jumped at the chance. ⠀ After all, our bees are the ultimate flyers, braving the elements in order to cover miles of terrain so that they may provide for their colony. ⠀ We started with our propolis base, the essence of our London Dry gin, then discovered a way to naturally colour it so that it would evoke those big open blue skies all flyers crave. We call it Flight Path, one of the few expressions common to pilots and beekeepers alike.... The blue turns to a beautiful pink when you add tonic.
Handcrafted in Staffordshire, this ‘Lichfield’ (London) Dry Gin contains botanicals inspired by our bees, the main one being propolis – a natural compound created from tree sap.
Propolis boasts warm citrusy notes combined with light floral hints, giving it a smooth finish and a natural freshness.
As one of the only gins on the market to contain this distinctive ingredient, we enjoy knowing that our bees have (yet again) made something to be proud of.
Price includes delivery and will be fulfilled by the Distillery. For any issues with delivery or product please contact: The Apiarist Gin
About the Distiller
On our little apiary, in the shadows of the cathedral city of Lichfield, is where our bees have provided a measure of tranquility and normality in these exceptional times. It is where we observe nature, learn from it, and apply that philosophy to everything else we do.
Today, in cooperation with an award-winning distillery, we have developed a gin infused with our own raw honey, bringing the unique character of that golden nectar into a more ‘adult’ setting. As our bees forage around the Lichfield countryside, we are proud to know that some of that goodness is going to make the perfect gin & tonic
