How to Use It

  • In a cocktail


Bee's Knees

A Bee’s Knees will bring out the luxurious sweetness of Reinaissance’s heather honey, while celebrating the zestiness of its brighter botanicals. Pour 60ml of Reinaissance gin, 22.5ml of fresh lemon juice, 10ml of honey, and 5ml of water, into a cocktail shaker. Stir this about quickly to make sure the honey blends well with its co-stars, and then hard-shake over ice for 10-12 seconds. Fine-strain your Bee’s Knees into a chilled cocktail glass for a fresh, bright and more-ish springtime sipper.

Inspiration behind the product

Elderflowers from the blossoming gardens of Dordogne are at the heart of Reinaissance’s recipe. The flowers are manually harvested, with their pollen staining the pickers’ hands bright yellow. After being rushed to the stills, distillation takes place on the same day, to allow the freshness of the elderflowers to shine through.

What makes it unique

Reinaissance - meaning, literally, ‘rebirth’ - is designed to give new life to the seasonal vibrance of Dordogne. It does this by transporting its eight botanicals from countryside-to-bottle in an elegant recipe led by fragrant elderflower, Erika heather honey, and other locally-sourced herbs and berries.
