Fee Brothers Lavender Water
Fee Brothers, Rochester, New York

Major Ingredients: Water, lavender extract
PROOF: None
AGE: Not Applicable
TYPE: Flavoring

PRICE: $4.85 - 4 oz.

Notes: Fee Brothers has been in business since April 1,1864 in Rochester, New York. Along with being one of the few remaining manufacturers of bitters, they also are one of the largest bar mixes and supply firms in the U.S. and produce flavorings and syrups for coffee shops, restaurants, etc. This is part of the water series which include orange flower, rose, and jasmine.

Appearance: Bright, crystal clear,no separation of extract and water.  

First ImpressionFaint lavender smells.

Taste: Authentic lavender taste, but a bit light in flavor.

Drinks: Used in various mixed drinks.

Other: Fee Brothers are also purveyors of many other products. A short list of some of their other products we have reviewed include their large variety of bitters including: Aztec Chocolate, Cherry, Grapefruit, Lemon, Mint, Old Fashioned Aromatic (Angostura), (West Indian) Orange, Peach, Rhubarb, Whiskey Barrel Aged Batch 1, Whiskey Barrel Aged Batch 2 , and Whiskey Barrel Aged Batch 3 . Fee Brothers products are the *only* bitters commercially available in U.S. that contains real angostura bark as a bittering and flavor component.

Final Thoughts: Not a fan of this one, but not full of artificial flavorings so points for that.

Bottle: Simple clear glass bottle with fluted sides makes for a better and surer grip than most, fliptop closure for ease of use/dispensing. It is distinguished from the other bottles by the lavender color of the printing and blue colored shrinkwrap around the top and neck.
