Smell the aromas of red roses and you are brought to a world filled with love, unprecedented beauty, and never-ending sympathy. The flower has been considered as the symbol of eternal love for centuries. Not without reason, ancient fossils date back to 35 million years. The oldest surviving rose bush beautifies the walls of a cathedral in Germany for over 1,000 years.
Rose grows on a woody perennial flowering plant. The flowers are protected by sticky prickles on the stems. Red roses belong to the most popular flowers in the world, with good reason. The sweetish floral scent influences the mind and pleases the mood, while boosting the concentration. Besides the ornamental purposes, roses are added to fragrances and beverages for their floral extracts. These can be considered exceptional since a huge number of roses is required for retrieving an extract.
The rose petals bring forward the romantic side of the rum, infusing its floral flavor for a subtle finishing touch.
Fun fact: In Roman times, roses were used to embellish rooms. Promises and agreements were made ‘sub ro sa’, meaning everything said ‘under the rose’ stays under the rose.
