Straw yellow color. Aromas and flavors of lime leaf, lemongrass, citronella, beeswax, and ripe peach with a silky, vibrant, sweet medium body and a smooth, complex, long finish conveying notes of jasmine, candied ginger, crystallized lemon peel, and honey.

Floral liqueur includes those liqueurs made from flowers such as lavender, geranium, violets and elder flowers. They tend to be quite elegant with floral and light spice notes. The best are well balanced with subtle flavors and work well in summer cocktails.
