It’s the BEE’S KNEES

The Bee’s Knees Cocktail: This cocktail is from the Prohibition Era. The term “Bee’s Knees” was slang for ‘the best’. Back then the addition of honey and citrus was used to mask the taste and smell of bathtub gin.

Save the Bees: Without bees, our agricultural system would completely change. Coffee, avocado, potato, and many more fruits, vegetables, and nuts would not be pollinated and wouldn’t grow. We use raw northern honey in the crafting of our Barr Hill spirits and it is our duty to help save the bees, both to protect our future and the beekeepers we support and for the greater cause: the future of agriculture and humanity as we know it.

September 25-October 1 is Bee’s Knees Week. Sept. 26 through October 1 the Breckenridge Distillery’s Bee’s Knees cocktail is helping SAVE THE BEES. So drink up. Can’t make it in? Click the link below to donate to some amazing beer or pollinator organizations.
