Have Borrago created the world's smallest Easter egg?
Borrago non-alcoholic spirit have created what they think is the world’s smallest Easter egg, all in need of a charity which means a lot to their company.
The micro Easter eggs are carefully handmade and are smaller than the 2 on a 2p coin. The eggs are made from the finest 80% dark chocolate and infused with Borrago #47 Paloma Blend non-alcoholic spirit. Each micro egg is wrapped in a silver leaf for protection.
Why try and make the world’s smallest Easter egg?
We think it is a fun and quirky gift and most of all, it’s for charity. All the profits from the eggs will go towards the Bumblebee Conservation Trust. Bees are very important to the environment, but also very important to Borrago too.
The bees have a major impact on our ecosystem. Bees pollinate up to 70 of the top 100 food crops and about 80% of the world's flowering plant, a single colony can pollinate around 300 million flower each day! Bees are on a serious decline due to industry changes, climate change and many other factors. This is having a knock-on effect, effecting pollination, wild plant growth, food sources, wildlife habitats and the list goes on.

Borrago is named after the borage plant, a pretty blue edible flower, also known as the bee flower. Although Borrago #47 Paloma Blend does not contain any borage (the flavours did not balance well) we decided to use the flower to garnish all our cocktails instead.
In addition to this, Borrago gives away a pack of borage seeds with every bottle of non-alcoholic spirit sold. The idea behind this is to help do our bit to help build a natural habitat for the bees. Borrago has now give away over 400,000 packs of borage seeds and will continue to do so. Spring is soon approaching and its the perfect time to start planting your borage seeds.

There are lots of other great and easy ways to help the bees and their habitats, like adding water station to your garden, offer nesting places and adding new garden beds.
