Bee's Knees

The Bee's Knees is a refreshing and aromatic cocktail known for its sweet and floral notes. This cocktail pays homage to the golden age of Prohibition, when creative mixed drinks were developed to mask the taste of the inferior alcohol of the time. The Bee's Knees is a true classic among gin cocktails and impresses with its balanced blend of the fresh aroma of lemon juice and the sweetness of honey syrup. Every sip of this cocktail is a delight for the palate and seduces with its cheerful and refreshing character. Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the golden 20s and let yourself be enchanted by the elegance and sophistication of Bee's Knees.

As co-founder of UNKNOWN Lands | Spirits and a passionate gin maker, I have turned my love for gin into projects such as "The Gin High Tea". My journey began in the world of film and design and led me to a deep passion for fine spirits. I firmly believe that cocktails don't have to be complicated or extravagant. In my book "The Gin High Tea - Gin Cocktails", I aim to inspire people to create simple yet flavorful cocktails. For me, the excitement lies in the imperfect variations that help us to discover new things.
