People have been fascinated since ancient times by the scent of roses. The Greeks bestowed the title “Queen of Flowers” upon the rose. Hardly surprising, therefore, that the inventive spirit of the Persians experimented with processing the raw material until they finally succeeded in condensing the vapour of boiling rose petals using an alembic, a copper helmet. This marked the start of the distillation era. The aim in ancient times was to obtain scented water used for freshening up. Today, essential rose oil made from the fresh petals and rose absolute, extracted from the flower buds, is one of the world’s most precious raw materials for perfume. So it’s hardly surprising that the scents of fresh organic flowers of a wide range of varieties supplied from a famous German rose-growing region hit us with all their intensity. If only we could capture it in a spirit! What would it taste like? These are questions that we always ask ourselves at the start of product development. In the case of the rose, the answer was particularly fascinating because one distillate was far and away the favourite on the nose during the tastings, and the other on the palate. We therefore opted for both varieties of wild rose, which have been cultivated in this country for centuries. The result is a heavenly spirit with a lasting rose fragrance and taste (sic), along with tea and honeyed spicy notes. Its impact is due to citronellol, geraniol and farnesol, along with rose oxide and 2-phenyl ethanol. It will taste delightful in cocktails, and also in desserts and dressings, or dishes from Arabic or French cuisine.
