Warner Edwards was set up by best friends Sion Edwards and Tom Warner in a 200 year old converted barn in Northamptonshire. They make Honeybee Gin in partnership with the RHS, in support of the embattled honey bee. Subtle sweetness and citrusy fresh.
"It’s not rocket science, we are just two guys trying to make awesome gin"
Tom Warner, Sion Edwards Founding partners
England has a great tradition of using honey in alcoholic drinks – just think of mead. Honeybee is distilled using 28 natural botanicals, including cardamom from Guatemala, angelica root from Holland, black pepper from Vietnam and cinnamon from Sri Lanka, along with local elderflower, Italian juniper and Spanish orange. But the star of this batch is the infusion of local honey, much of it from Warner Edwards’ own hives. Each bottle comes with a packet of wildflower seeds supplied by the Royal Horticultural Society, so you too can create your own bee sanctuary in your garden. This delicious gin has a slight natural sweetness so it is perfect for summer party cocktails such as Buzzecco made with, you guessed it, Prosecco! Also great over ice.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
