Cornflower blue is a deep vivid blue colour which has inspired humans down the ages. For Estonians it symbolizes their daily bread as it grows in cornfields. In Germany after unification in 1871, it became a symbol of the country as a whole. Vincent van Gogh immortalised them in his painting “Wheat Field with Cornflowers”. Cornflower was previously maligned and considered to be a weed on arable land, especially in cornfields. This is also how it came by its name. And it’s one of a kind. In addition to its magnificent colour, based on the cyanidin centaurocyanin, which unfortunately is not transferred to our spirit during distillation, it has a wonderfully sweet smell and exciting floral aromas that make this subtle spirit something quite unexpected. The fact that something that looks so great also has a very surprising and impressive taste, definitely means it deserves to be drunk and enjoyed. This spirit should be enjoyed neat to be fully appreciated, and its sweet, floral aromas lend a hitherto unfamiliar note to desserts and cocktails because, as far as we know, this is the first spirit made from cornflower.
