 Product Description

Rose's Lime is as classic as the cocktail itself. The perfect requirement for exceptional drinks, Rose's boasts a tradition of quality that goes well back more than 140 years.
 
The Rose family were shipbuilders in Leith near Edinburgh and Mr. Lauchlin Rose set up a branch of business provisioning ships with supplies which included lime juice. Lime juice, of course, was remedy against scurvy and the Merchant Shipping Act of 1867 made it compulsory for all ocean going ships to carry lime juice rations.
 
The demand increased and Lauchlin Rose realised that although the neat lime juice taken for medical purposes by sailors might not be everyones cup of tea, a sweetened, bottled and attractively labelled lime juice could well become popular in Britain. With that in mind, he introduced the first branded fruit juice drink Cordial Mixer Lime Juice.
 
Sweetened lime juice should never be used in recipes calling for fresh lime juice as it is much sweeter. It is, however, important in drinks such as the Gimlet.
