We have been champions of the unconventional, extraordinary and downright peculiar for over three centuries, so it should come as no great surprise that our latest tipple is - entirely naturally - a vibrant shade of violet. Exclusive to Fortnum's, this exceptional gin was hand-crafted using honey and violets harvested from our very own Piccadilly rooftop.
Our floral honey is harvested each October from our Piccadilly beehives and offers a subtle sweetness to the gin's fragrant, herbal notes. At six feet high - almost twice the height of a normal beehive - our four hives are home to a colony of busy bees crafting delicious honey that is highly in-demand each year. Similarly, our vivid violets grow happily overlooking St James' and, once infused, give colourful character with each sip. The gin itself was hand-crafted in Edinburgh at the Old Curiosity Distillery. The distillery is also home to The Secret Herb Garden, a site with over 600 types of naturally-grown and tendered herbs - the perfect spot from which to craft a heady, herbal delight such as our Honey & Violet Gin.
