Jasminum officinale, or common jasmine, is one of over 600 flowering plants in the olive family. Originally from the Himalayas, Kashmir and southern China, the plant is now also cultivated in Spain, France and Romania. The perennial climber is known for its white flowers, which have an intense honey-like, sweet and floral fragrance with fruity, herbaceous notes. It is very important in the perfume industry, aromatherapy and the production of jasmine tea. The edible flower buds, both fresh and dried, have found a place in the kitchen and the bar. They are mostly used in desserts, but also in spice mixtures to enhance the floral notes of a dish. They can be blended perfectly with aniseed, basil, ginger, pink peppercorns and white pepper. Cocktail variants include the Jasmine Fizz or the Jasmine Martini. Our jasmine spirit makes it easy to use just the right amount, eliminating the need for jasmine oil, syrup or aqueous jasmine extract, which are costly and time-consuming to produce. More than 100 substances in the essential oil produced from the flowers are responsible for the typical jasmine scent. Jasmone, methyl anthranilate, indole, phytol, benzyl alcohol, benzyl acetate, benzyl benzoate and linalool are some of them. Jasmine blossoms contain the greatest amounts of these substances at night, which is why they are harvested then. An experienced picker can gather between 10,000 and 15,000 flowers in a single night. This also explains the high price of jasmine oil, which is also said to have aphrodisiac properties.
