A Sweet Collaboration


At the end of 2014 us folks at Designworks were all abuzz with the installation of two beehives on the rooftop of our Auckland office, and it reminded us of how Designworks works best: working together, and letting the magic happen, organically.

To celebrate this, we teamed up with Six Barrel Soda Co. to create our Honey, Thyme & Mandarin summer drink. It reminds us of summers at the bach, mandarins fresh off the backyard tree and snapper rubbed with thyme on the barbie. We’ve used hand-squeezed Hawke’s Bay mandarins, real honey and fresh thyme to create a perfectly balanced sweet floral citrus taste with a lingering herbal finish. 

We also worked with a mixologist to come up with a selection of summer cocktails that were inspired by our Honey, Thyme & Mandarin syrup.
