Review and Tasting
Sampled on 23/06/2017
Clear, deep purple.
Tooty Fruity, fruit chew sweets/candy, blackberries and vanilla.
Blackberries, cherry and vanilla. Fruit tartness and black pepper spice balances light muscovado sugar sweetness.
Slightly tart with lingering blackcurrant Ribena-like fruitiness and light spice.
Mixed with two parts lemonade as the label suggests produces a sweet berry drink which resembles fizzy Ribena with faint lemon notes. Elderflower notes are overwhelmed by blackberry .
