Buzzback to Christmas 2019, there was a buzz of excitement around the Freestone Hive thanks to Gazeley and their buzzy friends – the bees.

Gazeley, like Freestone, are very proud of their sustainability and environmental credentials – a number of their sites have purpose-built bee hotels to ensure the health and welfare of their bees on site. They call them G-Hives.
And of course, with bee’s comes delicious honey. . 
. . .and with honey comes. . .
. . . Gin? Absolutely.
As a thank you to customers in the lead-up to Christmas – 300 bottles of London Dry Gin, infused with Gazeley honey and supplied with 3 small jars of natural honey were packed and delivered. All with a sustainable, environmental, bee-themed design and packaging.
– Gin bottles were wax sealed with 100% recycled bottle wax
– Then packed, with the small glass jars of natural honey, in specially commissioned honeycomb sleeves – made from recycled card packaging
– All wrapped up with Gazeley and bee-themed branding – again printed onto recycled stocks
– Finally, delivered world wide
All the waxing and packing (unfortunately no sampling) were done at the Freestone Hive, by hand, by us. We were very buzzy (too much?).
And if you want to take a look at the bees – pop over to – to see the bee cams.
