Saving the Bees
World Bee Day occurs annually on 20th May to increase awareness of the significance of pollinators, the dangers they are confronted with and their role in sustainable development.
The aim of World Bee Day is to reinforce measures focused on the protection of bees and other pollinators, which would considerably help to solve issues regarding global food supply and contribute to the elimination of hunger in developing countries. Click here to read more about World Bee Day.
Our bees are extremely important to us in terms of sustainability and biodiversity. Here at Arbikie, we work with the East of Scotland Beekeeper Association which is another element of our field-to-bottle story. As well as growing our own botanicals on the Arbikie farm, we locally and sustainably source fresh Angus honey which is used to flavour our AK’s gin alongside black pepper and cardamon chosen by our Master Distiller, Kirsty Black.
Locally and sustainably sourcing honey not only complements the sustainable ethos of Arbikie, but it also enables us to make the best local gin using the best local ingredients.
Bees play a crucial role in our environment, so, it is essential that we protect them at all costs to enable them to pollinate our local land.
