Botanicals: Cassia bark, ginger, sweet citrus and Australian Wattleseed.

Recommended mixer: Use with tonic or with sweeter mixers, such as yuzu or blood orange.

Recommended garnishes: Garnished can come from the “entire spice shop” from rose petals to star anise.

Subtle flavours of anise, wood, ginger and citrus are evident. When mixed with tonic the anise seems to get a boost and taste even stronger, producing a refreshing and characterful drink. Fair quality.
