Going all in for a fortifying punch to the stomach, Gut Prepper Oxymel is a cinnamon and chamomile heavy formulation that's more fierce on the medicinal edge of its honey and apple cider vinegar base, but still mixes deliciously. Definitely effective mixed strong and taken to soothe and warm the stomach, it's really nice mixed more gently as a sipper or mixed drink component as well. With ginger, cinnamon and clove on top of lemon and chamomile aroma, it smells like apple pie. Also a strong contender to try mixed with hot water for a bracing winter warmer. Nice!
Oxymel is a traditional medicinal preparation of Ancient Greece that preserves herbal ingredients and delivers them to the palate in a way that goes beyond just sugarcoating a bitter pill. Suribachi Herbal's oxymels are made with care and intention by hand in Victoria BC, with many of the botanical components processed and dried in-house. Their formulations are equal parts health forward and delicious, and we love them as drinks on their own and as enhancers for mixed drinks.
Suribachi proposes a variety of ratios at which to try mixing them, either with still or sparkling water, or in with juices or other drinks. Mixed at a strong ratio of 3:1, it is a bracing health tonic that will make you feel alive and on the level much as a shot of fernet or other traditional alcoholic bitter liqueur might. We love them at a more mellow dilution as well, like 8 parts soda water to 1 part oxymel or more, where they express like kombucha or the pet-nat of our dreams, acidity and sweetness and botanical notes flying.
