Why we're drinking this
Great bottle to have on hand for holiday drop-ins and entertaining. Its wild shock of fruit, razor sharp acidity and grab-you-by-the-jugular flavours are instant refreshment and crowd-pleasing happy juice. Sensational solo but also an easy choice with salty finger food.

Tasting note
Full-throttle refreshment here. Zips across the palate like a thing possessed. Intense key lime core is shot through with flavours of cut grass, snow pea and asparagus. Concentrated, kwäffable and sure to please.
