Additional Information

- Made with 7 real and raw ingredients - No flavourings - No preservatives - No added water - Made using centuries old macerating techniques It was seven years after our founder Sam started Rum Runner, an innovative cocktail consultancy service and events business, that he decided to bottle one of our most complex, unusual and requested creations. Always striving to offer unique drinking experiences to our clients, we had been looking for new recipes for non-alcoholic options and our research led us to these ancient herbal remedies called oxymels. ‘Oxymel’, we learnt, is derived from the Latin words ‘oxy’ and ‘mel’, meaning acid and honey. Oxymels are herbal tonics containing vinegar (as the acid) and honey with history dating back to antiquity when the “father of medicine”, Hippocrates, recommended them for their believed medicinal properties. In the absence of alcohol, our adaptation offers the perfect medium for aromatic roots, fresh herbs and botanicals to rival a French aperitif or Italian amaro.

something

Botivo is created using a method that is centuries old. The botanicals are picked and delivered to our farm, where we combine them in precise amounts and let nature do its work. The authentic and complex flavour profile is developed over time and we are proud to have complete traceability to the source of our ingredients.
While our recipe remains unaltered, we understand that each batch will have its own very slightly distinct flavour profile. Like a wine, we are dealing with natural ingredients, fruits, botanicals and honey, whose flavour notes and undercurrents can fluctuate with the weather, quirks of pollination, soil and many other unique variables.
For us, using raw, untreated ingredients was the only road to capturing the true flavours and complexities of the produce, resulting in a truly sophisticated non-alcoholic drink.
Due to the self-preserving qualities of our ingredients, Botivo can be stored safely for up to 9 months unrefrigerated.
