About Bee’s Knees Week (September 22nd – October 1st, 2023):
In 2016, Barr Hill started their annual Bee’s Knees Week initiative, which takes place every September. The 10-day celebration honors the Bee’s Knees Cocktail, shines a light on the importance of pollinators and creates a community of cocktail lovers working together to save the bees. During Bee’s Knees Week, individuals are invited to order a Bee’s Knees Cocktail at their favorite bar and share the photo on social media. For every photo posted using the hashtag #beeskneesweek, Barr Hill partners with one of several non-profit organizations located throughout the U.S. to plant 10 square feet of pollinator habitat, in order to save the endangered bees and pollinators. This initiative is especially important in an era where honeybees face colony collapse disorder (CCD) and other threats – Barr Hill wants to keep them buzzing not only for their own spirits, but for the 90 different food crops and 90% of flowering plants that these bees pollinate annually. Last year generated world-wide participation and Barr Hill planted 200,000 square feet of pollinator habitat which was an increase of 2.5 times the previous year’s impact.

To do this, the Slow Food Negroni Week Fund will not only support the hospitality community but also the preservation of cultural and biological diversity and the promotion of food and beverage education and knowledge exchange.
