About Us

Besty Gin is a gin infused with our own raw honey, a bit of Marula, bringing the unique character of that golden nectar into a more ‘adult’ setting. As our bees forage around the Limpopo Valleys , we are proud to know that some of that goodness is going to make the perfect gin & tonic. Made using raw honey from our hives in Limpopo.

Our Favorite Besty Gin Cocktails

The Bees Knees

The Bee’s Knees is a classic Prohibition-era cocktail made with gin, lemon and honey. It’s brightly flavored, lightly sweet, and just an overall delightful drink—hence the name.

The Apiarist Gin

The Apiarist Gin delivers rich, sweet honey notes balanced with vibrant lemon and dry tea flavours. The gin is underpinned with a base of peppery juniper, earthy and rooty notes and gingery spice that lingers in the warming finish.

Everything From Scratch

This is a natural product, we do not use additives of any kind and the honey that goes into the gin is raw and unfiltered. As a result, some batches may appear a slightly different colour (we distill on taste not look), and there may be a slight cloudiness to some batches which comes from the pollen in our honey.
