Bee's Knees Week, Sept 18 - 27
Barr Hill Spirits is a craft distillery located in Montpelier, VT. One of the owners is a distiller; the other a bee-keeper. Join the two together and you have three honey-based specialty spirits that are like no spirit you've ever tasted. If you have not tried Barr Hill Gin, Barr Hill Tomcat Gin or Barr Hill Vodka, you are truly missing out on a unique beverage experience. Factoid - It takes 4 pounds of raw honey to make each bottle of their vodka!
Bee's Knees Week is the perfect opportunity to try Barr Hill's Bee's Knees Cocktail. Made with raw honey from their own farm (or purchased from your favorite local farm or store) and Barr Hill Gin, which is distilled on the same farm, this cocktail is a delight at the end of a long work day.
Better still, you can help combat 'Colony Collapse Disorder" and save the honey bee population while enjoying this lovely, refreshing sipper. From Sept 18 - 27, purchase a Bee's Knees Cocktail at a participating restaurant, or make one at home, and post a picture on Social Media. For every picture received Barr Hill will plant 10 feet of bee habitat. Click here to learn how easy it is to make a difference in this environmental endeavor.
Stop by the store, pick up a bottle of Barr Hill Gin and celebrate with this honey-rich, slightly tart, lip-smacking cocktail knowing that you have made the world a better place for bees. Believe, me it won't just be the bees who benefit!
