The most fragrant rosewater is produced when the distiller distills the roses, then uses this rosewater in place of water in the still for a second distillation with fresh roses. Its a very old technique, a bit extravagant , but the results are gorgeous.
Tender Flower’s Biodynamic damask, centifolia and special extra fragrant varieties of rugosa roses, plus wild multiflora roses from our farm all went into the still.
And btw, Gertrude Stein did not say, “a rose is a rose is a rose”.
The correct quote is : “Rose is a rose is a rose”. Thank you.
As this hydrosol is twice the work, and twice the roses, it’s a bit pricier than the single distilled rosewaters.
