The Rosewater from Cortas is some of the finest you’ll find on the market. Made from distilled Damascena roses, it offers an exquisite floral flavor and aroma. Delightful on its own, enjoy Cortas rosewater chilled, or add it to your next cocktail for a refreshing summer drink. From simple to ornate, the exceptional flavor of Rosewater is excellent for so many culinary creations: use it to flavor pastries, cakes, or even savory dishes.
The strong floral notes intrinsic to Rosewater’s profile lend themselves particularly well to Middle Eastern spices and nuts like cardamom, jasmine, saffron, pistachios, almonds, and coconuts. Citrus, especially orange and lemon, are also enhanced by Rosewater. Popular in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine, if you enjoy making dishes like baklava, Turkish delight, and more, you’ll want to keep a bottle (or two) on hand at all times.
