With more and more people opting for a sober lifestyle, or at least opting to consume less alcohol, we’re seeing more and more non-alcoholic “spirits” or aromatic blends popping up on the scene. It would be easy to label this a new trend, but the makers of MeMento aromatic non-alcoholic blend used recipes and techniques dating back to 1498 to inspire their botanical blend!! MeMento uses distilled “aromatic waters”, distilling each component independently in order to preserve their purest flavor until being blended into the beautiful bouquet that is MeMento! Each sip of MeMento and their newest flavor, MeMento Green, is packed full of herbaceous, floral, and earthy tastes and aromas!
MeMento comes packaged in a luxury glass bottle with a wood cap and base. The added wood detail works together with the green forest peeking through on the label to give an overall “green”, fresh, and plant-based appeal to the whole package! The botanical essences inside MeMento and MeMento Green are the real stars of the show, and the bottles reflect that!
The original MeMento has a delicate, floral flavor that makes for a refreshing sipping drink or to add a bit of a flowery elegance to your favorite cocktails! Made with rosemary, helichrysum, rose, and lemon verbena, tasting MeMento is like taking a walk through a beautiful garden. We wanted to savor every last moment! Rose and lemon verbena add a hint of sweetness, while rosemary keeps this flavor firmly grounded and adds boldness!
MeMento Green was inspired by the pungent aromatic profiles of some chosen Mediterranean herbs. The aroma of this flavor is incredible. If the color green had a smell, this would be it. We found ourselves transported to a remote forest, leaves rustling in the wind and bird calls in the air. Made with green myrtle, melissa, laurel, and orange blossom, this flavor brings new meaning to the word fresh! While well-balanced, it does pack a bitter, herbal punch, so we still think it would be best for sipping or mixing! Luckily, MeMento provides plenty of delicious cocktail inspirations on their site that you can create with MeMento or MeMento Green! Free of alcohol, sugar, animal products, and gluten, MeMento is the mixer that includes everyone!
