The Bird British summers never seem to last quite as long as we'd like - a view shared by our medieval ancestors in the village of Brindle, Lancashire. Traditionally, the first call of the cuckoo is a sign that spring is on it's way. One year, the locals built a wall around a field where the first cuckoo had settled, believing that if they kept it in the village they would be blessed with good farming weather and fruitful harvests, year round. Alas, the wall wasn't built high enough and the cuckoo escaped. To this day, anyone born and bred in Brindle is known as a 'Brindle Cuckoo'. The name of our gin is inspired by this charming tale of old and is a reflection of our local family roots and farming heritage. The Bees Cuckoo Sunshine Gin is made with natural honey produced on our farm by Lancashire honeybees, bred and managed by The Bee Centre. Honeybees are one of the world's most important pollinators. It is estimated that one third of the food we consume each day relies on pollination. Honey is a naturally sweet food that contains nutritional elements such as vitamins and enzymes. Honey is also used in the treatment of a wide range of diseases, allergies and disorders due to it's medicinal and healing properties.
