Morning Forest

from Meadow 3

Early morning spring, walk through the forest – dew on the plants, maybe it rained, no noise apart from the birds as the forest wakes up. With flavors of fresh Swiss rosemary, orange mint and handpicked pine tips.

Mix suggestion
With Tonic, garnish: fresh rosemary

Contains only the best botanicals:

Pine sprouds

pine tips

Lemon grass

Lemon grass

Taste: refreshingly lemony, somewhat bitter and woody

Scent: Lemon fragrance, but also carries a hint of roses and verbena. There are also sweet-balsamic notes, fresh floral tones and green-apple scents
Lime

Lime

Taste: lemony, intensely sour, fresh, flowery, waxy, resinous notes in the foreground, emphasis on bitter notes

Scent: floral-lemon, of citrus fruits and rose blossoms, of orange and somewhat sweet of dried fruit


Limes thrive primarily in the subtropical and tropical regions of the world, where the fruit is mostly used in place of the lemon.


Did you know that limes are also grown in Switzerland? Yes, really, in the canton of Vaud on Lake Geneva.

Wormwood

Wormwood

Taste: bitter, woody-minty, herbal, smoky

Scent: pine needles, wood notes with a hint of aniseed and eucalyptus


The scent of wormwood is very “popular” with bees and bumblebees in particular.
Wormwood was produced on a large scale in Europe from the 18th century. At that time, the large companies settled along the Alps, because only here could the required herbs be obtained in sufficient quality and quantity. At the height of the cocktail era in the 1920s, wormwood was finally established as a luxury drink.


Today, wormwood grows almost everywhere in Switzerland, but the highest proportion thrives in the canton of Valais.

Orange mint

Orange mint

Taste: fresh orange peel, cooling mint, tart, fruity

Scent: fine oranges, fruity, refreshing

The scent is not only popular with butterflies, but the plants are also frequently visited by wild bees and other pollinators.
