No plant is more revered in ancient cultures than the sacred lotus. Lotus roots grow in the mud at the bottom of lakes and billabongs and have been eaten as a food source for thousands of years. They have a fascinating natural pattern with a mild flavor. #lotusrootgarnish

Each jar contains 12 perfectly formed and totally unique slices perfect for cocktail or dessert garnishing. They are coloured blue from butterfly pea flowers and the syrup is cooked with Bulgarian elderflowers to infuse a delicious flavour and aroma.

  • The blue syrup can also be used as a colour change cocktail syrup
  • Use the whole lotus root slice to garnish in or on the rim of a glass 
  • Or you can cut around the shape to make a flower pattern which is visibly striking.

The Lotus roots grow at the bottom of lakes and swamps, the same place crocodiles like to live... Here you can see company founder Lee in a lake in Thailand back in 2014 learning how the Thais harvest and use this amazing and beautiful aquatic plant.

This lotus has a pink flower. The flowers are used in the temples to make merit and the seeds of the lotus are eaten and believed to be an aphrodisiac!

    The lotus root is pulled out of the mud slowly and with great difficulty. A small section is left behind which will regrow very quickly over the next few months! They have a food value similar to potato but are crunchy like a water chestnut.

    We thinly slice the lotus roots then preserve them in a brilliant blue syrup made from butterfly pea flowers and elderflower.

    Explore the magical color change effects by adding lime or lemon juice to the syrup.

    Ingredients: lotus root slices (40%), cane sugar, water, butterfly pea flower, elderflower

    farm to your glass

    The pink finger limes are grown on our 80 acre farm at Kurrajong Heights. Chief distiller Lee planted 1,600 finger lime trees back in 2010 and has crawled around and under each and every one of the trees at least 70x since tending to their needs and ensuring they produce the most amazing fruit! It took a further 3 years of research and development to create this gin.
