Ingredient Spotlight: Raw Honey

If you’re one of the lucky ones that have their home bar stocked with our coveted Tamworth Garden Apiary Gin, you may have wondered about the sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

There’s a sweet secret to our Apiary Gin and that is that it’s delightfully sweetened with raw honey and the sediment is just the natural separation of real ingredients, so we suggest inverting the bottle before you enjoy.

We truly stick to what we know best – Scratch Made.

Speaking of “sticky” – back to the sweet stuff. We use raw honey sourced directly from Champlain Valley Apiaries in Vermont to add a final touch of natural sweetness to our spirits. This apiary was started by the Mraz family in 1931, and has stayed family-run for 3 generations and counting.

The bees in this area harvest pollen mostly from clover, alfalfa, and birdsfoot trefoil. This honey is not filtered or pasteurized, which results in slight wisps of wax and sediment in the Apiary Gin, but also gives a more flavorful taste and aroma.

Spring Preview

We’re releasing an extremely limited amount of our Tamworth Garden Apiary Gin this weekend (May 5th, 2017) only before the full batch is ready later this month.
