Summary
A syrup which when diluted produces a fruity drink which is balanced with sourness. A small amount, around 25ml cuts through soda water well to give an interesting drink with good complexity. Aromas of rose petal, blackcurrant, pear and elderberry. Very good quality.

Water, natural botanical distillates and extracts including Blue Weber Agave, Ashwaghandha, cinnamon, vanilla, pepper, lemon, Habanero Chilli, Preservatives: Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate.

Allergens are in bold.

Summary
A very pleasant and versatile non-alcoholic Tequila alternative which works well over ice with a slice of lime with soda water or tonic water. Would also work well in a margarita cocktail or any tequila based cocktail.

It is not just a tequila subtitute, however, it has other flavours to it which are not encountered in a Tequila. Aromas include agave, vanilla, smoke, subtle chilli, lemon peel, cinnamon and a subtle eartiness.

It is sweet and pleasant to taste on its own too. Well balanced and very good quality.
