Honey Spirits was founded on the ethos of producing the highest quality spirits using only natural ingredients and without the addition of artificial sweeteners, colourings or flavourings. We draw inspiration for our products from our wild surroundings and from the rich history, myths and legends of the region. Our first release, the Apoteca Gin range, was inspired by the homeopathic remedies where herbs and spices were added to spirits as restoratives.
All of our flavours and special editions use Apoteca Original as a base and then we add fresh fruits, vegetables and distillates to create our delightfully unusual range.
Apoteca starts with a rye base, not often seen in the world of gin, and this gives us a soft, spicy platform for our 22 botanicals. We focus our efforts in making some of the best meads using a base of the simplest of ingredients – 100% raw honey from the bee hives we tend to ourselves and pure, Peak District water and then adding only fresh and natural ingredients to create our range
