It's bright golden colour is due to the raw honey added to the spirit. The visual sediment is beeswax coming from natural healthy honey.
"If the bee disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have four years left to live"
- ALBERT EINSTEIN -
Bees and other pollinating insects play an essental role in ecosystems. 1/3rd out meals eaten by humans are made possible by honeybees. If all the honeybees were to die out, thousands of plants would follow which would lead to millions of people starving.
In the last few years millions of beehives have been dying out. A phenomenon called 'Colony Collapse Disorder". Presently we're not entirely sure what's causing it, but we know pesticides, parasites, climate change, etc. are part of it. So it's important that we as beekeepers try to do our best to keep the bees healthy and strong. Weak colonies have lesser chances of survival in wintertime.
What we do.
We spend 10% of our profits to
the Save The Queen Fund and do everything possible to save the bees.
