Rosemary - Rosmarinus officinalus

What is Rosemary?

One of our most famous Mediterranean herbs, Rosemary is a member of the mint family. It has a long tradition of being used as a kitchen herb, most often paired with lamb dishes.

 Rosemary has an invigorating, aromatic warming scent that has been used for centuries to uplift the mood and bring its distinctive flavour to cooking.

 Rosemary has become a favourite ingredient of mixologists who often pair it with gin and use a rosemary wand to stir. If you're looking for something non-alcoholic, adding a pinch of fresh rosemary to your favourite herbal infusion will help perk you up from a mid-afternoon slump. Try it with other aromatics and citrus flavours.
