State Honey Curators paired gin from The Walter Collective with hibiscus, Strega, and Castillo del Sol Honey. "The warm spices and citrus in the gin blend perfectly with the molasses and stone fruits in the honey, offset by minty Strega and bright hibiscus." We think this cocktail is not only beautiful but sounds delicious. It would be perfect for Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) when drinking hibiscus tea is common. It would also be great on a warm evening.
Oregon-based State Honey Curators pulls together "a collection of environmentally conscious, terroir influenced, magical raw honey." They are committed to working with bee keepers (aka apiculturists - did you know that? We didn't. Learn something knew every day!) who love and care for their bees and their ecosystems.
A little more about the flavors you can expect in the gin from Walter:
"Mellow, soft Italian juniper, bright grapefruit overtone, cassia, cardamom and other spices for balance."
