Beesy Luxembourg Honey Gin is the result of a cooperation between Mellis and Opyos. For months, we have been testing, experimenting and working on how to marry honey and gin into a harmonious blend. Beesy is an expression of our enthusiasm for beekeeping, which makes an essential contribution to the protection of our local environment and biodiversity, and our passion for spirits. The result is a fusion of the sweet and floral-fruity aromas of this golden nectar from these busy insects, with the vibrant and distinctive juniper nuances of our Opyos Navy Strength Gin. A wonderfully balanced palette of flavours, characterised by a floral sweetness, mild spice and soft creamy texture.
The inspiration for Beesy Luxembourg Honey Gin is rooted on the friendship with Mellis that has evolved over the years at local events in Luxembourg, when the paths of our two start-ups crossed. With Opyos distilling award-winning craft gin and Mellis turning everything related to honey into gold, the two small producers decided to combine their know-how to create something special.
Beesy brings together the best of both worlds by infusing 100% Luxembourg honey into our Opyos Navy Strength Gin. Before marrying the honey and the gin, the honey is slightly melted to achieve a homogeneous fusion of the two elements. For several months, we let this honey gin harmonise and mature before the gold-yellow liquid finds its way into the bottle.
Warm floral honey notes in combination with woody and resinous scents of a conifer forest are strongly rising up in the beginning, before mellowing out gradually into spicy juniper and fresh citrus flavours, revealing the first impressions of our Navy Strength.
The honey is dominating and providing a rich sweetness, ensuring a pleasant viscosity that is nicely cut by warm spices and leaving butterscotch aromas on the palate. Flavour-packed, profound and smooth.
Impressive intensity, dominated by floral and fresh honey notes leaving an ongoing herbaceous aftertaste. The juniper-led aromas are persisting, paired with citrus aromas and are rounded off by our classic Opyos character.
Beesy Luxembourg Honey Gin is perfect for any occasion. If you want to drink a classic G&T as an aperitif, mix 5cl Beesy with Imperdibile Dry Bitter Tonic. As a digestif, it is best enjoyed at room temperature or chilled on ice.
