This first tonic syrup, the one that won the hearts of Quebecers as soon as it was released in 2016, is a story rooted in the Saint-Ferréol-les-Neiges region. At the heart of this product lies the juicy and acidic sea buckthorn of Léandre Saindon, a Montrealer who decided to settle in the region to cultivate his own land.
Each year, he selects the best berries so that Patrice, from Monsieur Cocktail, can combine them with Labrador tea, and thus reproduce the memory of his many hikes in Charlevoix, at the Parc des Grands Jardins, where the clean air and foresters of Quebec inspire local micro-distillers in the making of their gins.
Flavour-free, colourant-free and preservative-free.
The bitter florality of Labrador tea perfectly coats the boreal acidity of sea buckthorn, supported by a delicate finish of orange peel and lemon.
