Lanique, Spirit of Rose is a premium spirit with a beautiful, natural rose flavour, mixing perfectly with tonic, fizz or as a twist on a classic cocktail.

Lanique was first created over 200 years ago and was enjoyed by kings and queens across Europe. Rediscovered in 2015 Lanique is now produced in the UK using the original recipe.

Lanique is created by steam-distilling thousands of hand-picked rose petals that are sourced from the East. Once steam distilled, the rose petals release The Attar of Rose, a liquid that is more valuable, gram for gram, than gold itself! The Attar of Rose is then added in a slow, multi-part process with carefully selected sugars and a neutral grain spirit.

The complex distillation process creates a truly unique flavour of Turkish Delight, a hint of cherry and the gorgeous aroma of the most beautiful Damascene rose.

Appearance: Clear, bright pink.

Aroma: Ripe rose and raspberry reminiscent of Turkish Delight; with soft hints of lime and strong spirit aromas.

Taste: A slightly syrupy, liqueur-like texture with sweet pastilles of rose, ripe raspberry and cherry. The initial warmth and sweetness spreads over the palate with an undertone of peppery spirit, soon to be contrasted with a subtle rind of lime, providing a fresh citrus hit.

Aftertaste: Sweet rose and hints of white chocolate, with a subtle lime acidity
and cracked black pepper spiciness provide a beautifully balanced finish.
