About the cocktail

The Bee’s Knees is a classic cocktail traditionally made with gin, honey, and lemon juice. In this recipe, we also added a splash of orange juice which was made popular by the mixologist David Embury in his 1948 book The Fines Art of Mixing Drinks in which he says, "The addition of a small amount of orange juice makes for an interesting variation".

This recipe is strong, yet refreshing and sweet, made with our Distilled Slow Sloe gin for added sweetness.


4 cl Distilled Slow Sloe gin

1 cl honey

2 cl freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 cl freshly squeezed orange juice

An orange zest twist, for garnish


1. Add gin and honey to a shaker and stir until the honey dissolves.

2. Add the lemon and orange juice and top up with ice. Shake well.

3. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with an orange zest twist.


About the gin

Slow Sloe both builds on and challenges the proud British sloe gin traditions. Whole sloe berries and a small amount of blackberries is infused in the gin for 9 - 12 months before it is sweetened with honey from Njord’s distillery garden and bottled. The result is a gin with lots of fruit and intense notes of almond and marzipan from the kernels entwined with floral notes that partly come from the honey.
