Wow - this is something special. Preserved Meyer lemons, sea salt, whipped cream. Texture and depth that is enveloping, acidity and savory quality that excites the palate. Enjoyed with gazpacho. The story behind this bottle is interesting and inspiring.

Smells like lemons drizzled with olive oil & salt, tastes like a box of lemonheads that washed up in the sea foam at your feet.
