This gin is the perfect tipple for those with a sweet tooth, or to replace an after-dinner treat.

When this remarkable liquid emerged from our experimental still, Cygnet, it caused quite the buzz among the Sipsmith Swans. Why? It might be due to the addition of pollen, homemade honeycomb and fresh honey

Like many of us during lockdown, distiller and Cacao & Honeycomb creator, Joe decided to grab a mixing bowl, fire up the oven and perfect his baking skills. But it wasn’t long before a surplus of honeycomb led him back to the gin stills. He sourced honey from Jared’s hives in the Cotswolds and selected cacao nibs to add a savoury, chocolate depth. As a result, Joe couldn’t ‘bee’ happier with this slightly sweet dessert liqueur.

The perfect partner to pudding, sip neat or combine 50ml Cacao & Honeycomb with ginger ale in a highball over ice, and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Tasting Notes:
The Nose: Sweet, with inviting notes of honey, chocolate and light orange

The Palate: Creamy, sweet honey balanced by refreshing pine and soft spice.

The Finish: Bitter chocolate complemented by warming spice and soft nuttiness.

  1. As suggested mixed it with a ginger ale which I normally reserve for spicy gins. This worked well with a warm sweetness coming through from the honeycomb. Enjoyed by the rest…
