Founded by beekeepers to help raise awareness about the importance of pollinators, CanBee cocktails donates a portion of each sale to pollinator conservation world-wide.

Inspired by 12th century saint, mystic, and mother of botanical wellness, St. Hilide’s is inspired by the real life Hildegard von Bingen. The founders shared, “Living in California, the term “wellness” applies not only to exercise and eating clean, but to caring for the whole self. To us, that is the mind, body, spirit and village (community). And this notion has inspired every aspect of the brand, from the muse, to our name, to the ingredients, and even our logo. The logo features an ouroboros, a snake eating its tail, which comes from early alchemists, and symbolizes rebirth. Our snake has a detailed depiction of the seed to fruit, birth to death and rebirth process on her back.” Currently, the line has three flavors, Guava Ginger, Elderberry Hibiscus, and Lemon Turmeric. All three feature functional ingredients and real botanical tinctures and juices.
Using traditional fermentation and distillation techniques Spirity uses tea to create variations of classic cocktails with extremely low proofs.
