Two photographers and a graphic designer walked into a bar, got drunk and decided they should start their own distillery. Sounds like the beginning of a bad a joke but it’s basically how the idea for Beehive Distilling got started.
“It wasn’t really that big of a stretch for us to start a distillery,” said Chris Barlow, partner and head distiller at Beehive Distilling. “Photographers drink a lot.”
Since delivering their first bottles to Utah liquor stores earlier this spring, Beehive Distilling’s Jack Rabbit gin has been hopping off the shelves and is now readily available at many Salt Lake area bars and restaurants.
