Orgeat is a full of fascinating flavours...
The word originates from the Latin “Hordeaceus”, which means to be made with Barley, but it has become a widely popular cocktail ingredient, most heavily developed by the French, who used almonds rather than the original barley-almond blend for the base - this generates for a much nuttier oil packed with sweetness and with floral fragrance coming from the rose water infusion.
As well as in France, over the years there have been many variations of this syrup travelled and picked up on across the world with each country having its own unique spin and best way to sip!
It is a very popular ingredient in Cyprus, Italy, Libya, Suriname & Tunisia.
A key part to the now classic summer cocktail the ‘Mai Tai’, here is our London variation, paying tribute to these flavours being so well travelled, explored and interpreted.
Our TGC Orgeat adds orange peel, to provide balanced citrus notes and tie in the inclusion of the cointreau liqueur.
