Lemonade is a hugely popular flavour, so why are Gusto trying to add their unique spin to a formula so popular, tried and tested?
Well, they like things a little less sweet and a little more complex. There are a multitude of lemonades on the market that donk you on the head with a strong lemon flavour and assault you taste buds with refined sugar or the lingering horror of artificial sweeteners.
So, they thought, lets re-imagine this classic flavour through the Gusto lens….
The finest organic Sicilian Lemon juice, big knobbly lemons packed with flavour, the home of the lemon. To this most wonderful juice they’ve introduced fresh yuzu juice and the oil from cold-pressed yuzu peel to bring another gentle, delicate and wonderfully fragrant flavour.
How did a simple lemonade take 18 months to develop? Ingredients, just getting their hands on the finest fresh yuzu juice shipped frozen from the farm, a juice with exceptional flavour and colour and a scent that fills your nose and sweeps you to a higher plain.
They've sweetened the Sicilian Lemon with yuzu, with Fairtrade agave, Fairtrade apple juice and a light touch of organic grape juice. Calories per bottle are below 100 and the low GI wont leave you too sugar high.
Originally a wild citrus from China and Tibet, yuzu bushes bare a light load of knobbly small grapefruit-shaped fruit with a taste somewhere on the scale between mandarin, lemon, and pomelo. They have a scent and delicacy of flavour that has secured their place in many a Michelin starred kitchen around the globe. Primarily grown in Japan and Korea, yuzu bushes have an extraordinary resilience and can withstand cold winters with sub-zero conditions.
So for a light, complex, lemonade with a hint of yuzu magic, Gusto Sicilian Lemon With Yuzu awaits your delectation.
