Gents Swiss Roots Bitter Lemon is a very refreshing bar lemonade. So damn refreshing, that we sometimes enjoy a bottle undiluted, meaning without Gin or Vodka. It contains like the Tonic Water from Gents Swiss gentiane. The extract adds the typical bitter taste to the drink. An additional herbal botanical is meadowsweet, a Swiss flower growing on fertile soil. The leaves of the plant taste a bit like almonds and add a very interesting note to the drink. But of course the primary taste of this Bitter Lemon is lemon. The juice of Sicillian lemons, refined with a little portion of grapefruit, is used. The best way to serve this Bitter Lemon is with a lot of ice and a good Vodka or a smooth Gin. We can recommend for example Geranium Gin. As the small glass bottles are very stylish and decorative, you can also serve them at your private party for designated drivers and people who want to stay sober!
