Canteen Honey Gin
At Puddingstone Distillery, in Tring, Hertfordshire, they teamed up with the wonderful folks at George Street Canteen in St Albans to create a gin using honey from their own beehives.
The hives are situated in the café garden which has a stunning view of St Albans Cathedral and gives the bees, access to large green spaces such as the adjacent Verulamium Park, which, at over 100 acres, is host to a huge variety of plant species.
They opted NOT to infuse the honey into the gin post-distillation as this often results in a final product that can be sweet and one dimensional. Distilling allows an extraction of characteristics which better reflect the assorted flora from which the honeybees collected pollen.
