Made in 10-gallon batches from the world-famous Damask Rose extract from the Bulgarian Valley of the Roses, this Elixir evokes a time of unparalleled grandeur and sophistication. The extract is sourced from Bulgaria directly, where the Damask Rose extract is produced only 2-6 weeks every summer, depending on the length of the summer season. Each day, the delicate rose petals are picked by hand 1.5 hours to 30 minutes before dawn, when the dew point is at its peak, and the fragrance and flavors of the roses are the strongest. The same day, the rose petals are extracted and it takes over 1,000 petals to make just 1 ounce of this pure extract. This lends our Rose Elixir the scent of actual fresh roses, in both flavors and delicate aroma. Add a splash of our Rose Elixir to your favorite spirits for a floral twist on cocktails. For celebrations, make gorgeous champagne cocktails for unforgettable toasts. And of course, try our Rose Elixir in still or sparkling waters, teas and lemonades for refreshing sodas and mocktails everyone can enjoy.
