Not the bees knees
Our mid-week fix is ‘Not the bees knees’ by Luca Vezzali from Milan.
60 ml Elephant Gin
20 ml Fresh lemon juice
15 ml Homemade honey syrup
15 ml Velvet Falernum
2.5 ml Saffron solution
Shake and strain into a coupette.
Garnish with 4 drops Abbott‘s Bitters on the top.
500 ml bottle of award-winning Elephant London Dry Gin (45% ABV).
The gin’s nose yields a subtle juniper aroma with an undertone of mountain pine and other herbaceous notes. The taste is complex but strikingly smooth encompassing floral, fruity and spicy flavours which can be enjoyed both straight and in a cocktail.
Each bottle is custom-made, adorned with hand-written labels and embossed with a crest. Each batch is named after past great tuskers and elephants that Elephant Gin’s partner elephant conservation foundations currently help to protect.
Elephant Gin donates 15% of the bottle profits to elephant conservation charities.
