Thank you!

Hi. Thank you for enquiring about Violet & Gold's range of Australian native mixers!

To taste the samples, we advise you to mix 1 part of the sample with 10 parts chilled water. The carbonation slightly changes the flavours, so taste with still water first, then with sparkling water if you wish to. 

Note that the wattleseed mixer can flavour your coffee - add a few drops - and the lemon myrtle & ginger mixer is perfect with hot water.

It might be in the mixology area that V&G's premium Australian native mixers deliver the best of their wonderful and unique flavours. More Australians turned to books, videos and online masterclasses to learn how to prepare and enjoy their home-made cocktails. And they now look for new flavours. The amateur mixologist and cocktail enthusiasts can now create their own cocktail using crafted spirits to mix with our handmade small batches Australian native mixers. Below are a few cocktail ideas. 

Enjoy your tasting session!

Cheers, Nathalie & Marie
