The Bitter Truth Rose Water
The Bitter Truth Rose Water is a non-alcoholic seasoning for drinks and food made with natural rose blossoms.
Already in antiquity scientists started distilling blossoms to gain precious fragrances. By using the method of steam distillation one received an essential oil and as a by-product condensed water which also was flavoured with the aroma of the blossoms. While the oil was mainly used as perfume, the blossom-water became an indispensable ingredient in many drinks and dishes especially in the Arabic world.
The Bitter Truth Rose Water is only flavoured with organic blossoms of roses. After the intricate distillation process and a short rest period the entire floral aroma unfolds. The scent of the Rose Water is flowery and very natural. Since it’s very intense it should be used advisedly. It can be combined with all kinds of clear spirits and fruit liqueurs. Drinks like the Rosewater Rickey and the Rose Margarita give an impression in which variable manner this blossom water can be used. In Indian and Arabian cuisine Rose Water is also used to season many dishes and desserts.
