This is complex orgeat whose full almond character imbues cocktails with divine flavor and aroma. We start with whole almonds that are blanched and roasted to bring out deep toasted nut flavors. Also in the mix: cane sugar, orange blossom and a touch of bitter almond oil for a distinct marzipan note. Use this orgeat to shake up a world-class Mai Tai!

This is easily my favorite cocktail syrup because of its versatility across many different cocktails and because it is a key ingredient in a surprising number of cocktails. I've orgeat syrup from other companies, but I feel like Liber & Co. just does this well - plenty of the nutty flavor of almond and no artificial taste to it.
I have been ordering various syrups from Liber for the last several months and have never been disappointed. This one is no exception. Another excellent addition to the bar. The Mai Tai recipe on the back was perfect.
It's so darn good. Nice consistency, powerfully delicious flavor. Unparalled!
I used to live by an excellent bottle shop in Los Angeles, which is where I first purchased Liber & Co orgeat. Then I moved away from LA and realized you can't just buy it anywhere. Tears were had, subpar drinks with other orgeats were made. Then the pandemic happened and I thought, "I could make my own orgeat!" Again, tears and subpar drinks. Then the pandemic continued for another eternity months and I became much more open to online shopping for literally anything, including shipments of multiple bottles of orgeat from Liber & Co. I don't have a lot of fancy words to describe why this stuff is the best, but it is.
We've been using Liber & Co. orgeat in our bustling home tiki bar for a year or so. It is the absolute best! The flavor is spot on, it's the right amount of sweetness, and the viscosity of this orgeat results in a luxurious mouthfeel that other bottled orgeats just can't match.
