  • Tasting Notes:
    Strongly aromatic, warm and peppery, resinous and slightly bitter, with notes of pine and camphor. Nutmeg and camphor are present in the taste; the aftertaste is woody, balsamic, and astringent. The flavor dissipates after leaves are cut. Flowers have a milder flavor than leaves.
  • Combines well with:
    apricots, oranges, tomatoes
  • Can be used as a syrup or just simple muddling the leaves.

  • Cocktail Recipe: Gasper Love’s Rosemary

    • 25ml Grand Marnier
    • 50ml Campari
