Butterfly Peaflower Tea Question

edited December 2020 in Recipes

How do distillers use it for coloring and flavoring when it's not FDA approved?

Or is that Just a Canadian thing?

What about the guys in OZ?

  • just steeped AFAIK

  • I've used extract before.
    It's a bit of a gimmick though and not UV stable. We have a bottle of yellow Ink that got a bit too much sun.

  • It's not legal in the US yet. There are a number of companies making the necessary research and regulatory investments.

    Maybe something changed over the last few months, but I doubt it.

    As far as bartenders using it, nobody is really going to care what happens at that level, certainly not the TTB or FDA.

  • Ah, so more widely used for house made concoctions then.

    I figured they'd be using a color fixative of some sort but apparently not, hmm.

    I'm curious what effect acid has on the yellowed product.

    I've been toying with my gin, macerating with butterfly peaflower after distilled. Needed something different for a small gathering we're having and this should do it! left jar had 4 peaflowers added for a few hours, they split into two jars. After a few attempts, I realize I overdid it with the citric acid on this one, but this was my first test. All in all a success in my book.
