Today's Review: Rekorderlig Botanicals Rhubarb, Lemon & Mint

What a lovely English summer's day we've had, although now it seems the warm weather is gone again. But still, today was a lovely day to enjoy a barbecue, paired with a refreshing cider, so I grabbed a few, including this interesting little botanical brew from Rekorderlig. It's a pear cider, with a blend of rhubarb, lemon and mint, in a lovely little see through bottle to set it apart from their usual flavours.

"Little" is the operative word here, you get less volume here than the regular varieties, for the same price. It's good stuff though, a nice combination of flavours, with the rhubarb really coming through, and the tartness of the lemon giving it a nice citrus kick. The mint is subtle, rounding off the flavour, but I have to say it may have done better without it, there's maybe just a little too much going on here for me to appreciate all the elements. But this is a very refreshing cider, with a very unique flavour. I'm looking forward to trying out the other Botanicals, whenever the sun comes back...

My rating: 4/5
