Flowers are gateways to distant places. The aromas of less encountered blossoms remind us of places far from home.
Marigolds are citrus and spice.
Pineapple flowers are, well, pineapple-y. They don't come from pineapple plants, they are a species related to chamomile.
We grew both flowers in our organic garden. We made a tincture with each and added them to a barrel aged cider from Ida Red apples.
What's it like?: It smells like aged honey, lemon zest and orange creamsicles, garnished with chamomile blossoms. Those sweet notes are balanced by a delicate astringency, like a whisper of juniper, or orange pith.
The high abv gives it weight and wine-like body. Flower Power is is the truest essence of these summer blossoms.
