Review and Tasting
Sampled on 13/09/2015
(sample bottle use by 12/June/2018) Slightly opaque, off-white yellow.
Fairly neutral with faint icing sugar. Certainly without the wet dog aromas often associated with egg white.
Sweet and syrupy icing sugar with thick mouthfeel. Clean and neutral.
Sweet icing sugar.
When used in a sour cocktail the result is very comparable to that of fresh egg white and sugar syrup with the white head achieved by dry shaking impossible to differentiate in both looks and longevity. The flavour of the cocktail is also very similar although we found the drink produced using the Giffard Egg White syrup had noticeably thinner mouthfeel. Perfect for high volume bars or consumers who like whiskey or pisco sours.
