September 23 – 29, 2019


The Bee’s Knees Cocktail dates back to the Prohibition Era – when the term “bee’s knees” was slang for “the best” and people used honey and citrus to mask the taste of bathtub gin. Fast forward to 2019, Barr Hill Gin adds raw honey to every batch before bottling, making it the perfect base for the Bee’s Knees Cocktail.

Since its establishment in 2017, Bee’s Knees Week participants have collectively donated over $31,000 to non-profit bee and pollinator organizations. Join us in our 3rd year as Barr Hill Gin and bartenders unite to help save the bees through this week-long celebration of bees and the Bee’s Knees cocktail.

Barr Hill asks that participating bars and restaurants collect $1 from every Barr Hill Bee’s Knees cocktail sold during Bee’s Knees Week, then donate those funds here come the end of the week. All are welcome to make a donation. Please note, to best utilize the funds, 2019 Bee’s Knees Week fundraising will close on December 31, 2019.

Bars, venues, and retailers all over the country are signing up and will serve the Bee’s Knees Cocktail during Bee’s Knees Week. Participating locations will be featured – add your venue today!

Let’s make Bee’s Knees Week a huge success!
