Solbrü 'Restore' is a punchy and powerful little number, bringing smokey touches and earthy funk from dandelion and oak. Built around reishi mushroom extracts, it's got heat and oomph that carries powerfully through all manner of mixing scenarios. Alone in soda it offers a whiskey-like bite, and more than others in the lineup the gentian bitterness delivers a Fernet-like heft. Super versatile, super friendly, we reach for it to add the necessary complexity to whatever swamp water we're throwing together out of what's in the fridge.
Each Solbrü flavour starts with a base of water, apple cider vinegar (not a lot just a little), and medicinal mushroom extract. The verdict is still continually rolling in - mushrooms are good for your brain. Having many reasons to want to give my brain all the help it can get, this is welcome news. A different mix of herbs and spices give each flavour its character, a hit of oak emphasizes the spirited feel.
Solbrü is a great addition to your back bar - each one adds a certain level of complexity to any kind of drink, and much like vermouth, even a half ounce can totally alter the drink for the better. We can't wait to hear what you come up with!
