Maidstone Distillery Bees Knees

Support #NoMowMay, the delicious way with Maidstone Distillery

It's #NoMowMay, that time of year when we are encouraged to free the wildflowers in our lawns so they can grow wild and provide a feast for pollinators, tackle pollution, and lock away atmospheric carbon below ground. And who doesn't need an excuse to not get the lawn-mower out for a few weeks?

Rather than working on the garden, why not put your feet up and relax with a Bee's Knees, made with Maidstone Distillery's light, floral Ranscombe Wild gin. Every purchase of Ranscombe Wild supports Plantlife, a local conservation charity, so by drinking a gin and not mowing the lawn, you're working twice as hard for our local environment!

To create a Bee's Knees, you’ll need:

  • A Martini Glass
  • Ice
  • Cocktail Shaker and Strainer
  • Ranscombe Wild Small Batch Gin
  • Honey
  • Lemon Juice
  • Fresh Lemon

1. Add 50ml Ranscombe Wild Gin, 10ml Honey, 25ml Lemon Juice and a generous handful of ice to a cocktail shaker, then shake vigourously.

2. Strain the mixture into your favourite martini glass.

3. Garnish with a twist of Fresh Lemon Peel to elevate the serve.
