Fruit and plants from the region
Our syrups are made according to a traditional Croatian recipe from fruit and plants from the region. Read more about the 7 different flavors that we offer and where each ingredient comes from.
Our lemonade has a tart, natural taste that is characteristic for thick skin lemons. We source our lemons from small Mediterranean farms. Each lemon is hand squeezed to ensure they are all perfectly ripe. This process also ensures that we avoid bitter aromas that may enter the juice when you press the entire lemon fruit.
This rich strawberry cordial tastes sweet. For this strawberry lemonade, every strawberry is carefully chosen and picked by hand. Only the most flavourful strawberries are used and that is why the lemonade has a real, authentic and sweet strawberry flavour. A refreshing, sweet thirst quencher.
We hand pick fresh, young and wild grown, organic sage flowers at the moment when the bud is starting to become the flower and the plant releases its honey resin scent to attract wild bees to pollinate them. We pick our sage flowers on hard to reach hill tops in central Dalmatia where Salvia officinalis originates from.
Europeans have been in love with the taste of Elderflower from the Roman times when they were used to flavour food and drinks. The intense and clear taste and smell of elderflowers comes from a special variety that grow in the continental part of Croatia. We use only fresh flowers picked at the right moment when the flowers aroma is optimal.
We get our raspberries from small Croatian farms where they are handpicked in perfect ripeness. They love the continental hot days and cool nights, this climate creates raspberries with a perfect balance of sweetness. We deseed them and keep all the fruit fibers to get a rich raspberry cordial.
For this refreshing, minty lavender drink we use the flowers of the organic Lavandula Angustifolia plant. This sort of lavender grows in the continental, cooler parts of Croatia. This climate makes the flavour of the flowers mild and gentle and therefor ideal for making our unique and surprising Lavender drink.
From a selection of over 200 mint varieties we chose Spearmint for our mint cordial as it has a distinct mint flavor that is mild and clear. This type of mint actually originates from Europe. We hand pick the leaves before the plant flowers to get the best aroma’s. Lavender and sage both come from the mint family.
