Kate explains, "At Bug Hill Farm, I grow black currants and create my concoctions from them because I am truly mad about their complex flavor, which is a unique combination of sweet, tart, pungent and savory, layers that unfold slowly rather than all at once."

Black currant's complex flavor has a great affinity with white wine, champagne, vodka, and chocolate, and the health benefits of black currant are a nice plus. So enjoy mixing Black Currant Cordial into your own artisanal cocktails, lemonades, seltzer, or water, or try pouring Black Currant Cordial over ice cream, custards and yogurts!
